Incite the mind; inspire the heart! – Brad Westering
I learnt about Frosty Westering when I met Brad at Garfield High School a couple weeks ago. Turns out that Brad is following his dad’s footsteps in some ways. Brad’s the vice-principal of the school and it’s his passion to trigger the highest level of learning and readiness in his students!
Brad believes that for effective learning to take place we must ‘incite the mind’ first. The days of academic lecturing are over. Kids want to understand why something is important to learn and what they get out of it. Brad also thinks that to take the kids along on this life long journey we must inspire them. This quote by Brad is the title of the book he’s working on! Additionally it’s a quote that’s totally applicable to our lives if we want to lead others towards a shared vision… What do you think?
