Effect

“You have been created
in order that you might make a difference. 
You have within you the power to change the world.” 
~ The Butterfly Effect: How Your Life Matters

The butterfly effect is a scientific theory that a single occurrence, no matter how small, can change the course of the universe forever. What a wonderful philosophy for educators! Since my college days at Marquette, I've embraced the challenge to "Be the Difference." We must believe that even the smallest changes that we make in the lives of students every day have the power to transform the future. It is an awesome task that can leave one tired and battered, but what could possibly be more important?
