“In my rear view mirror, my life is getting clearer” (Bon Jovi, 2007). Just as a mirror offers reflection, so too, does thought. Inspired by Alec Couros today, my mind flows to that of my teaching/learning life and trust…

What is it that causes me to have utmost trust in public education?

Is it because I believe that teaching is first and foremost a positive relationship building profession?

Is it because I have been trusted by so many and therefore feel that I can trust as well?

Or maybe it is, that deep at the core of my belief system sits a conviction that states what ever I put out in to this world will be mirrored back towards me?

I welcome your thoughts surrounding trust.
