Your Passion(s) for Being a Pirate

We are not passionate about everything we teach. It’s OK! Let the freedom wash over you. Now that the secret’s out in the open, let’s talk about it.”

                                                -Dave Burgess


Now that we know more about each of you, we want to know what your motivations are. Your Play-Doh introductions gave great insight to what you are passionate about personally and professionally. We now want to dig deeper and get a well-rounded look at where your passion stems from. Dave divides passion into three categories:


1. Content Passion:

Within your subject matter, what are you passionate about teaching? In other words, of all the topics and standards you teach as part of your curriculum, which are the ones you most enjoy?


2. Professional Passion:

Within your profession, but not specific to your subject matter, what are you passionate about? What is it about being an educator that drives you? What ignites a fire inside of you?


3. Personal Passion:

Completely outside of your profession, what are you passionate about?
