The making of the 90 second short clip on INNOVATION featuring Megan Nordoff as a Top 10 Finalist has everyone around here with a new respect for those in the film industry. The experience of helping Ms. Megan articulate her message of innovation has proven insightful- there is so much more to the person then meets the eye.
As we walked the facilities together after learning about Megan reaching the Top 10, we reflected on her many contributions to our school community, the children in her care, and our extended community members. Passing by the tangible evidence of innovation in the classroom, I would ask Megan- HOW DID THIS BECOME PART OF THE CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT?
Here’s a little bit on what she shared with me along our walk.
And there’s still more to discover happening under Megan’s guidance each day…
Midway through our walk and a little overwhelmed I paused, “Megan,” I asked again, “Where do you begin? How did this all become part of the classroom experience?”
Upon a moment’s reflection, she replied, “I’m not the innovator. The child is. I’ve never really considered myself an innovator just another tool facilitating the innovation waiting to be birthed inside each individual student. I am only able to do so in preparing myself and in understanding the many relationships we share with our world and with others and in following the child to prepare his environment for his own discovery.”
