So today we had all of our schools’ retreats. Hundreds of educators gathered in various locations to talk, work, laugh, share, and grow together. It was a spectacular day! It’s impossible to pick a favorite moment overall. Too many powerful and moving moments. So I won’t even try! Thank you to all of our leaders for caring about each other, teachers, kids, and learning for the hard work it takes to build truly profound experiences.
Then, while waiting for one of our groups to return from lunch, I was looking at Twitter….and found this:
Every time I return to this tweet…it goes up by a couple thousand likes. I don’t know Andre, but am sure following her now. Every so often an educator throws out such a profound truth, that other educators react like crazy. Here’s a case in point. 43,000 likes when I took this screenshot. Retreated over 8,000 times. Why? Because this simple, simple idea, can turn a classroom around instantly. Forget fancy teaching classes and theories.
Take a post-it, write these two things on it…then do them. Instant better learning opportunities for your students or staff. Full stop. Period.
All in all, a great day to be an educator!
