The American Dream

The Old American Dream:

Keep your head down
Follow instructions
Show up on time
Work hard
Suck it up will be rewarded.

The New American Dream: 

Be remarkable
Be generous
Create art
Make judgement calls
Connect people and ideas
...and we have no choice but to reward you.

(Seth Godin, 2010)

We all know that we don't instinctively work for extrinsic rewards in our field.  Our rewards are the successes of our students...and this is how we'll do it.
