Wednesday Word: Identity

Gryphon House | Wednesday Word

How do you identify yourself as a professional? Do you own the incredible importance of what you do each day and wear it with pride? You can never measure the difference you are making in the lives of children, families, your colleagues, and others in your community. You are not “just” a teacher. Try this on for size the next time someone asks you to identify your profession: “I am a technology expert. I wire children’s brains for the future at the rate of one hundred new connections per second each day!” Embrace your identity, stand tall, and be proud.




In loving memory of Gryphon House author Leanne Grace, MEd, we are sharing pieces of her inspirational writing every Wednesday. Leanne was the director of professional development at Hildebrandt Learning Centers and a lifelong advocate for early childhood education.  She inspired the early childhood community to prepare children as lifelong learners with her ability to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. One person can make a difference, and Leanne did just that. She will be sorely missed.
