In her reflection, Carolyn contends that leadership begins with sharing your voice, with being connected:
Any one of us can lead–any teacher– any librarian–any administrator and any student, by believing that we individually have the power to make a difference and that we have a voice. I believe that being a connected educator gives us that voice, amplifies that voice, and is a great democratizer.
The work we do is important, each of us. So keep at it.
This morning I interviewed Carolyn about her day. I was particularly inspired by her message about our obligation to mentor the younger members of our field and to ensure that are connected.
