“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” – Albert Einstein
Knowledge is limited. It is important, but not most important.
Imagination is limitless. The potential of imagination is the energy for the future. Our imagination, our ability to dream, is what will create the future.
As educators we must impart knowledge for without it we don’t have foundation. Our students wouldn’t have a place to start. We must also know that what we impart – the knowledge – is only the beginning. While we may know more than our children, our children are imagining a better future.
We must provide a strong, solid foundation for our youth. There are non-negotiables for students in our classrooms. We must also empower, encourage, and inspire the imaginations in our classrooms, for that is our future.
