Boring is easy, so be awesome!

“You were made to be awesome!” according to the one and only Kid President. We all need a little encouragement every now and then since it’s not easy being awesome all the time. And, don’t forget you need to have hopes and dreams to reach for.
It’s the start of a new school year and the perfect time for a peptalk from Kid President. Check out his video. Which road are you on? What are your hopes and dreams for this school year? Who encourages you? What will you create to make the world awesome? Let us know.

About the Author

Hello my name is Karen McKelvey and I am a 3rd grade teacher at Curie Elementary School in San Diego, California. I began teaching at Curie Elementary in 2002. I feel fortunate to be part of such a great community. I love blogging with my students as it provides them with an authentic audience for their work. Collaborative group work and project-based learning are key components of my classroom. I completed my Masters degree in Educational Technology from San Diego State University in 2010. Many of the concepts/pedagogy and technologies I learned about in this program, like learning management systems, Google tools, and blogs are implemented in my classroom. Technology plays a key role in the learning that occurs in our classroom. We don’t learn about technology, we learn with technology. Students are engaged in activities that incorporate writing, research skills, critical and creative thinking skills, and much more on a daily basis.

    Dear Mrs. McKelvey’s Class,
    We’re on the road to awesome! This school year our hopes include learning to play an instrument. Miranda hopes she gets along with Mr. Hoffman, our music teacher, and that she does her very best. Miranda is learning to play the violin and wants to learn to play William Overture.
    We are inspired by Kid President…and we especially, love his dancing! He’s just a kid but he has so many well thought out, inspiring, motivational things to say. We thought it was funny when he said, “Don’t stop believing in your dream…unless your dream is stupid…so get a different one.”
