Each week Ruth Ayres extends an invitation to share and celebrate events, big or small, from our week.
The subject of a Twitter chat this week was creating literacy communities. This topic just happens to be my favorite to talk about. I guess you could call it a passion of mine.
Passion is like kindling. It sparks an idea into action. It flames the fire of action into a movement. And the results of a movement can be life altering.
I love to share my passion for literacy with others, especially when I never know how it might be that spark for another teacher.
Little did I know this teacher was watching my tweets and following my passion.
I shared this tweet again this week during the chat. I have shared this many times before, and I even said I am sure teachers are tired of seeing my door!
But this tweet got 15 retweets and 55 likes, more than any other time I have tweeted it.
It's NOT about sharing my door; it is about sharing my passion. And for me, that never gets old.
I love this quote about purpose and passion. I know Ruth is trying to finish her book and share her passion for writing and story with others. Her work builds my passion.
And we must continue to do the same for others.
