Feeling “inspired”

January 25, 2013


On Thursday, Nick had the honor to once again participate in the “Teacher for a Day” program.

This year, Nick enjoyed teaching with 5th grade teacher Julie Daniels at Lent School in Southeast Portland.

One of the day’s lesson plans included vocabulary words for the week.The word that stood out for Nick was “inspired.”

Inspired is exactly how Nick felt about his experience as a teacher.

He was inspired by a dedicated teacher who puts all of her students first every day, and by the young people who welcomed him into the classroom and demonstrated their passion for learning.

Special thanks to the Lent School community, Julie Daniels, and her students for a wonderful and inspiring experience, and to the Portland Association of Teachers for organizing the event.
