Our Job To Do
The Daily Coach is one of my go-to newsletters. Let's think about this for a moment.
In moments of chaos, darkness, devastation and unrest, the transformational leaders and positive difference-makers become the guiding light for resilient empathy and truth-seeking solutions. Realize, our words must be manifested in our daily behavior. Anything short of that, and we are living and perpetuating a lie, while failing the leaders of tomorrow.
All of us have an opportunity to bend the arc of history for our learners, schools, and society.
This is hard work.
We are all exhausted.
But who else will do it?
There is a saying that "all politics is local." Well, I think that all lasting change is local. We can start by taking the actions necessary to make the world a better place where we live and work.
We can create a compassionate school that teaches kids grace, love, and respect for themselves and each other
We can support each other as we link arms and start to reset our schools
We can learn to take care of ourselves and each other.
Take a break this summer. Try to recharge. But understand, the hard work of resetting schools is just beginning!
