    Setting high expectations for our students is a critical part of helping them strive for excellence and is an important quality to develop as students journey toward adulthood and get ready to enter the world of work and/or post-secondary study. Our students are strong and capable in many ways, and it’s important to provide them with opportunities to “strut their stuff” and discover for themselves what they are capable of. Unless we try new and different things and stretch our abilities beyond our comfort zone, we will never be sure about what we are capable of.

    We are so proud of the efforts of our students at Connections for Learning. Our student leaders have worked very hard to create community in their school. “They Will Rise” is a great title for this piece. We all believe that when we co-create the conditions for greatness that we empower our youth do do awesome!

    Thanks for your comments Mike and Emilie. I agree that if we allow opportunities for students to “spread their wings” they can do incredible things. At times students may not fully believe in themselves or their abilities, but once they feel empowered and develop confidence, they can exceed our expectations(and theirs!!!!!) I am so very proud of our CFL students!!!

    CFL students (and staff members) do fabulous things! The working relationship between the staff and the students is so positive to allow them to co-create opportunities for students to both develop and showcase their skills and talents. Everyone benefits from the flexible and creative environment. Keep doing what you’re doing!
