Are you who you want to be?

It has been said by Stephen Downes recently that we should model the people we want our students to be. Stephen's Web
I strive and fail at this everyday! I am not anywhere near as creative nor as productive as any of my students. Just this evening, as I had a Meebo (IM) going with a kid in each class at the same time (and research says we can't multi-task. Hrmph!), I noticed that if I had never met some of my challenged students, I would never know their challenges just by their words. In fact, if I could separate their typed words from their persons, they do seem gifted! I am impressed with the growth I see in each one who is trying, on whatever level. I just pray I will model who they need me to be!
