Ben Franklin once said’ “Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn.
What does this particular quote mean to you? How many times each day do we TELL our students? What are you teaching your students that you want them to remember? What kinds of opportunities are you providing for your students to be involved?
Think about one way you can INVOLVE your students this week? What is one thing you can enhance in your planning?
I am often reminded that the influence of a good teacher can never be erased.
Think about what kind of influence you make on your students each day. What are you doing to make sure that you have a positive influence on your students? Think about one thing you can change at this point to have more of a positive influence on your students.
A wise person once said, “Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back. What you sow, you reap. What you give, you get. What you see in others, exists in you. Remember, life is an echo. It always gets back to you, so give goodness.
What kind of echo do you resonate to you students and their families? Think about all the ways you can send a positive message to your students, their families, and your colleagues.
Desmond Tutu once said “Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world”
Think about the good things you do each day. What can you do to ‘overwhelm” your school and/or students? How can you make everyone feel good?
