Growth Lists

Think about how far you've come. Just think about it for a second. Think about all of the hard days that you've made it through. And just look at you. Wow, you made it. You are strong and inspiring and you've grown. I'm so deeply proud of you. I'm proud of us.

Because of a Teacher

This work is legacy work. And it's built one day at a time, one small move at a time. As Peter Block has said, "How do you change the world? One room at a time. Which room? The one you're in."

Turn the Radio Up

The world is filled with enough that makes us feel heavy and overwhelmed. The work is the work - whether we enjoy it or not. So, how might we make it feel a bit more light and breezy?

Don’t Miss it Wishing for It

But until that happens, until our school schedules are changed to better honor the humanity of both students and educators, we need to find a way to be OK. To be more than OK. To be at peace.

When People Feel like More Work

As educators, when we nourish others in reaching their fullest potential, we are one step closer to reaching our fullest potential. We are one step closer to reaching our highest professional purpose.

Everything to Everybody

We don't have to make ourselves small to make other people more comfortable. And we don't have to make our work small either. We can choose. We can choose how we show up for ourselves and for others and for our work.
