I’m convinced that the best way for schools to teach empathy, respect, tolerance & understanding, is to model these behaviors each & every day for our students.

The best schools don't focus all their energy on intervention programs; instead, they focus on strong tier 1 instruction to limit the need of intervention programs.

Schools should approach poor student choices & poor behavior from the lens of 'how can I help you’ & ‘how can I meet your unmet needs’ rather than ‘how can I punish you.'

The inappropriate or disruptive behaviors some students show towards the end of the year aren’t because they are excited to leave but because they don’t want to go. For many, school is the stable environment they long for and summer break disrupts that.

Summer “vacation” for some is a 2 month reminder of the dysfunction & chaos in their lives. School can be the only place to consistently get a meal & hug. Expect some behaviors. Feel sad instead instead of mad & extra compassion is welcomed.

Great teachers know they're teaching kids first, then content. The needs of the students come first, then the curriculum. The best lessons your students will learn in school probably won't be found in textbooks, they will come from your example.

This is Santa Fe HS teacher, Ann Perkins. I’m sick that I’ve seen more photos of her killer than I have of her this week. Celebrate heroes. Don’t make celebrities of terrorists. God bless you Ann. Rest In Peace. You deserved better...from all of us.

My challenge to everyone this week: Make (at least) one positive phone call to recognize a student who has been putting forth extra effort, demonstrated strong citizenship, has shown great improvement, etc. Imagine the potential impact of these conversations.

Do you ever wonder why it’s regular education kids vs. special education kids? Why isn’t about meeting ALL kids needs?

Teachers, I hope none of us go into the summer wishing that next year's kids will be smarter, more focused, and more caring. Instead, I pray that we find the time to learn, refresh, and plan great lessons so that we return next year smarter, more focused, and more caring.

This is why is such an exceptional way for Ss to learn and “do” science. Ss need to be engaged in conversations, asking questions, modeling and teaching each other what they’ve discovered 📝🔬

Maybe schools need to revamp their student presentations too! Narrative memos have replaced PowerPoint presentations at Amazon. Here are three reasons why.
