Walking the tightrope at the moment.
On the one side, I fall into the responsibility of the teacher – I feel responsible for making sure they progress, learn skills and become awesome.
On the other side, I fall into kindness. We must meet people where they are at. Plain and simple. Sometimes that means a student just coming to school is huge.
The trick, and oh my, is it ever a trick, is to walk the line in between. Throw into the mix that we are developing an entirely new way to approach what school means and holy camole, it is a bit of a mind bend.
If the winds are blowing though and I have to fall, I choose to fall into kindness.
