    THERE IS A SUPERHERO IN YOU!

    From the Desk of Gabriel Suppiah


    Superman, Ironman, Thor, Wonderwoman, Batman, Scarlet Witch and many more superheroes are fictional characters by Marvel and DC. Their stories are featured on the television, magazines and the big screen. That is our reality. A superhero is fictitious!
    NO!


    There is a Superhero in you. Before you realise that, you got to say, “Enough is Enough”.
    Before you realise that, you need to get out of that slavery to education mindset.
    Before you realise that, you need to drop that “I can’t” attitude and start believing that you are important in this world.


    Before you realise that, you need to look at the people you love and respect and let them know that you are born for more.


    This is about you; the Superhero in you!
    For way too long, a child’s life is defined by grades and what they achieve in the various classes. Even if that is considered ok, the mental stress and anxiety a child goes through that goes unnoticed or neglected is an even bigger crime.


    There are crimes everywhere when it comes to children.
    1. We do not allow them to express
    2. We define what they can and cannot do
    3. We do not allow them to Metamorphosize
    4. We do not allow them to create
    5. We do not challenge them
    6. We do not allow them to get hurt
    7. We do not allow them to grow
    Of course the defensive parents and educators will be up in arms by now ready to stone me to death, but let me share something with you. I am a parent and I am making the same mistakes just like anyone else.


    I want to play a role of a good parent in this extremely stressful world of today. I don’t want to be an extended version of a teacher, tutor, coach, counsellor or anything overly structured. I just want to be a parent and inspire my kids with my love for them and the passion I have for why I do what I do! This means we need enablers! We need the Alfreds’ of the world, the Happys’ of the world and the Nick Furys’ of the world to help us out. This is where the educators RISE UP as enablers.

    It is time. Life is more than grades. Life is about values and these values are shaped by powerful experiences; teachable moments. Our kids look more depressed and defeated then ever before. We can end this. We will form our halls of justice and from the ashes of defeat will rise a new breed of Superheroes; Education Superheroes.


    They will conquer good over evil; the ultimate learners of what is needed to make this world a better place. They will smile and they will laugh, and we will, alongside them, proud that we have played our role as parents to the best of our ability.


    Everything important and necessary will sound impossible to achieve and the voices of uncertainty and defeat will creep into us too. This is where we dig into OUR inner superhero and make a decision to Change, EVERYTHING!


    Welcome to the new world of Education Superheroes!
