**************

What is the purpose of our work as educators? Our answer to that question sets our course and becomes our compass.

What if we understand that our work is to cultivate and sustain a culture of collaborative, substantive inquiry in our classrooms?

When we shift our focus from instruction to inquiry—from teaching to thinking—we commit ourselves to the humility of listening, the rigor of researching, and to creating possibilities rather than pursuing predefined outcomes. We understand that curriculum is a complex and evolving dialogue among educators, children, and families.
