Maya Angelou once said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
When reading this quote, I am often reminded of the many times, we sometimes feel powerless. I then take a step back and remember that we do have autonomy over most of what we are asked to do. Sometimes this requires changing our mindsets, even though it can be difficult.
Food for Thought:
Turn at least one negative into a positive
Advocate your students
Collaborate with colleagues on a regular basis
Share a “best practice” with a colleague
