End-of-Year Pause

Pause and Reflect

As the 2014-15 school year draws to a close, it is time to reflect on all that was accomplished. My thoughts revolve around three words: Passion - Patience - Perseverance, as featured in yesterday's blog, Momentous Inspirations. For now, as the countdown begins, it is time to direct attention to:

THOUGHTS TO INSPIRE POSITIVITY

FOR TEACHERS WHO ARE ARTISANS OF LEARNING:
Inside the teacher's heart is a passionate tick tock, patiently waiting on every response from her young charges. Creative vision, carefully unfolding each day, rests inside the teacher's mind, ready to ignite the flames of learning.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

REMINDER FOR EDUCATORS:
Be perseverant in all that you do for you are the model inspiring your young charges to build stamina for life. 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

ON LEARNING SPACES:
Student-led classrooms are powerful places of passionate learning where learners are more than consumers of information. They are creators and sharers of knowledge. 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

ON CONNECTED LEARNING:
Build your network and connect with those who spur you on. PLNs are hotbeds of collaboration, collegiality, and support. 

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

ON THE YEAR'S END:
