who inspires you?

Tenth day of the July Challenge:

Who inspires you?

Professionally, I am inspired by some of my colleagues. One has been teaching for more than 25 years and she keeps trying to challenge her students. She continually works on content. She's a little hesitant to use technology, but she inspires me to keep working on the content. Another colleague was the 2012 Teacher Of The Year and her dedication and enthusiasm is absolutely amazing. There are others, of course, but the two are my closest friends.

Personally, I am inspired by my family and my bestie. My family because we cherish our past yet have bonds in the present. I am lucky to call my sisters and my parents my friends. And my bestie because we've been friends since around 1983 and she has shown me what it means to be goal oriented, to be human, and to be a friend. I hope I'm half the friend to her that she has been to me over the years.
