What does it mean to “Expand” from the inside? To expand means to grow and develop. We all know how to expand or make something bigger on the outside of us. But, how do we expand from the inside? I believe it means to grow stronger at something we believe is important, to become better at something. We all want to become smarter, stronger, healthier, and wiser, don’t we? I’m working at learning something new every day. I think our children are also desiring to expand, to become smarter daily. We can empower them by helping them see how they have expanded and are being successful. We do that in our schools daily, helping our students feel proud of their successes.
