Have you been watching the Winter Olympic Games this week? The Olympic Games bring a sense of togetherness, inspiration, and motivation that no other sporting event can. According to ancient Greek mythology, fire was a gift to humanity from Prometheus, who climbed Mt. Olympus and stole it from Zeus. Legend has it that the Olympic flame that burns today is the same fire that’s been burning since the first ancient Olympic Games, symbolizing "the light of spirit, knowledge, and life," and signifies the passing of traditions from one generation to the next. Whether we think of the games themselves, our rich cultural history, or our long tradition of social protest and collective action, teachers are instrumental in the work of passing knowledge and tradition down to the next generation. Every day, you inspire your students to set the bar higher, uncover their true potential, and go for the gold!
