Ubuntu

Class of 2011
Curriculum and Instruction

Ubuntu is an African concept that means, "a person is a person because of other people". This word is important to me because it reflects the nature and influence that people have on each other. Additionally, it emphasizes the collectiveness and community we all humans are a part of. Finally, it stresses the important responsibilities of our interconnectedness that I likewise believe are important.
