What It Means to Be a Hero

During one of my recent frisbee workshops, I had a grade 4 student tell me that I was her hero. I have never been called a hero before so after looking up the definition and doing a bit of research on what a hero is, I share my thoughts on what it means to be a hero. (more…)
