An Invitation to Make Writing That Matters – http://wp.me/p57D8-clh
Around the edges of the “work” day, the stuff of great classrooms, are the small rituals of reflection, practice, and preparation. Time is of the essence of course. The choices we make with and in even our smallest acts (before and after we go about our day) can cultivate love, peace, and compassion.
To find my balance as a teacher/wife/mother/human, I go inward. As I have discovered from my students, being fearlessly human is inspiring. From adult’s perspective, I find that the capacity to let go of the drama and focus on what matters–Love–creates the most profoundly impactful setting for all of us, especially in the classroom. Be fearless today.
There is much to be said for learning in all forms.

Over the past year, through continued practice on my mat, I have cultivated the idea that opportunity and possibility exist in all beings even if words and actions show otherwise. It sounds so simple, but if it were so, the world would not be always at war and students (and teachers) in all classrooms would want to come to school.

How do teachers make the world a better place? Always, always, always, am I cultivating ahisma in my classroom. Our world becomes better when the words and actions in our classroom cultivate kindness, calmness, and peace. #donoharm
