“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. At Marquette, we were taught to "Be the Difference," to trust that the smallest acts of kindness, wisdom, and innovation have the power to transform the future. What a wonderful philosophy for educators! It is an awesome task that can leave one feeling a bit battered like that butterfly in this picture. But what could possibly be more important?
