This week, I tagged along with Craig Tucker (thank you, Craig) on several site visits that took us from Chapel Hill to Duplin County. We talked to Fellows and their Mentors about their progress in the program and Craig picked their brains about curriculum ideas.
Without a doubt this has been a highlight of my time with the Kenan Fellows Program. Getting to meet many of you in person and seeing first-hand how this program is exposing you to new experiences and sparking your imagination affirms our mission.
A common thread we have witnessed is that some of you have self doubts. You might ask yourself: “Am I doing what I am supposed to?” or “Am I am doing this right?”
That is the beauty of this program. By taking you out of your comfort zone, we are asking you to trust your instincts.
If you are growing, learning, asking questions, opening yourself to new experiences, new ways of thinking and thinking of ways to facilitate a better learning environment for your students, the answer is yes! You are doing it right.
