Step Outside Your Comfort Zone

In the few moments before I shadow a meeting this morning, I stop by the blog to stress the importance of teachers (and students) stepping outside of their “comfort zone” to learn new skills and become better at the craft.

I say this because until today, I had never heard of “mechatronics engineering.” Soon, I’ll be sitting with a project manager as he reviews upcoming work with his team- hopefully getting a little taste of something that I’ve never heard of before.

As teachers, we have our content areas in which we are knowledgeable, and are able to talk confidently to our students. However, it is essential that we are able to expand our minds, and our boundaries, so that we are able to educate our students in a well-rounded fashion.

Here’s to new adventures and learning something we never thought possible.
