Walking the tightrope

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.
