Alas for those Who Do Not Sing . . .

Saturday, I participated in TEDx Penticton, hoping to run into a few new ideas to ponder and some exciting thinkers living their beliefs. I was not disappointed. Among the performers were Saige Carlson and Beamer Wigley, two of our students! As a teacher, it’s a delight when you are “out of teacher mode” and run into students who are “out of student mode”, let alone when roles are reversed. Beyond witnessing how Saige’s and Beamer’s singing–particularly their duet–captured the crowd, I was moved and reminded of something quite important: learning is as much about uncovering one’s voice as covering the curriculum! Congratulations and thank you Saige and Beamer!
