Inspiration comes from the most unlikely places. I read a lot of blogs for my personal edification. Sometimes, I find that a blog post about a personal matter can sometimes relate to how we approach educating our students.
This article on spending five more minutes on those things that are important in life resonated with me. I was thinking about how five extra minutes a day for a single student could make the difference in that child’s day, week or school year. Or, how five extra minutes could turn that “difficult to love” student on a different trajectory in our classes.
Just a thought.
