The most memorable teachers I had in school took the time to chat with me when I made a poor choice. They also gave me a clean slate the next day.

Create an environment not just of trust and psychological safety, but one where learning is valued, where we invite difficult questions, allow for positive conflict and creative abrasion, one that moves us from a “knowing” to a real “learning” organization.

In the past 24 hours I've let my neighbor borrow my chainsaw, held a door at the store for a stranger, texted a friend & let them know they're awesome, helped a colleague with a project, and told my family I love them. A lot of small things can really add up.

If our students feel numbed or drained as a result of the educational process rather than more excited and alive, then somewhere we are going very wrong. If we only aim for the acquisition of knowledge and don’t shoot for the activation of internal drive, we’re missing the point.

A leading cause of employee turnover is lack of acknowledgment, appreciation, and supportive affirmation. If you're interested in retaining your best employees, make sure they know how valued they are.

If you read anything this weekend, read this by from the Institute of Teaching. It's the best and most concise document I saw on effective teaching: Learning, What is it and how might we catalyze it?

There’s a lot going on in the world. Some of it we can control or indirectly influence by our actions Some of it we can’t. We can, however, directly impact those within our orbit. By making small positive desposits in our neck of the woods we can slowly make a difference.

A wise teacher knows that showing empathy & compassion to students doesn't mean you are weak & soft. It means you are strong enough to care.

When we are closed to ideas what we hear is criticism. When we are open to ideas what we get is advice.

A true leader doesn’t have to remind you of their position in the organizational heirarchy. A true leader doesn’t put down & degrade those with whom they work... publicly or privately. A true leader can admit to a mistake. A true leader believes their job is to elevate others.

Students will better reach their potential when we focus on their strengths instead of constantly trying to fix their weaknesses. And the same is true for educators too, including you. Build on your strengths.

Great teams are honest with each other. Great teams encourage alternate perspectives. Great teams allow all voices to be heard. Great teams operate in an environment where each member makes other members better.
