Develop as a practitioner

A career in education provides an opportunity to empower children and uplift communities. There aren’t many other careers that make it possible to positively impact so many people’s lives, every day.  Practitioners themselves should be committed to a lifetime of education, because when they lead by example, their classes will be inspired to discover all the advantages of learning.
