Wanderlust
In WanderlustEDU we take a deep breath, learn to re-appreciate why we became involved in education, and prepare to try new things. The courage to stay relevant in our profession is a work in progress. We can do our absolute best when we understand and nurture certain attributes: Motivation, Environment, Skills, and Knowledge. Motivation is our what drives us. Our Environment is the conditions in which we exist and embark. Skills are what we have and gain along the way. Knowledge is what we know through training and experience.

Explore: How an Adventurous Spirit Can Unlock Greatness
People can set their minds to magical and seemingly impossible ideas and through exploration, and the skills that come with it, they move the impossible into view for all to see. It's our time as educational explorers. Time for us to take chances, time for us to embrace the challenges that come with exploration, time for us to move beyond the known and shape this new world of education. Together, let us set our course for greatness.
