We survived our student leadership summit this week. It was two days of intensive training and preparation for the upperclassmen in our school. Honestly, it was a ton of work - but it was AWESOME! The feedback from the kids and parents was worth all the effort that we put into it and I can't wait to see how we keep the momentum alive this year with our students.
One of our favorite presenters, Joe, used this video to talk about kindness and why it should not be random, but instead, intentional. I hope that we can keep that conversation going and further increase the mindful acts of kindness throughout our school community. When I watch the video I love that it is a child who reminds us to get our heads on straight, work together, and be amazing.
I don't know about you, but my favorite part of teaching is the inspiration I find in all the kids around me, showing up every day, failing... succeeding... and figuring life out. This week I've been especially spoiled by a few whose kindness is setting the world on fire! Enjoy this leadership video and Happy Friday!
