Happy New Year! What better way to start the new year than with a Take5 (okay, it's really a Take9 because we just couldn't stop once we started) focused on all things kindness related? In 2018, let's help one another promote kindness, empathy and caring in our classrooms, within the hearts of our students, and in our school communities. 2018, we've got this.
I've worked as a middle school educator for almost twelve years. I can easily channel my inner twelve year old, jetting myself back to my own junior high experience (yes, I was in 7th and 8th grade back when it was still called "junior high"). This year, however, is different. My oldest son is now in seventh grade, experiencing middle school at another school in our district. He loves middle school -- he's having fun and learning a lot. And I too have learned so much in these first few weeks as a middle school parent, already transforming my thinking as an educator. So in no particular order, here are just a few of the lessons I've learned so far.
