I have spent the majority of this last week doing work around the district review process. That meant that I spent a lot of time with students and teachers in the schools. So, I thought to myself, this is a good MLOG to talk about the JOY that I was able to witness first hand.
So, what did I see? I saw the JOY in a child’s face as they mixed yellow and blue and got green. I saw the JOY of a student who figured out how the protractor worked. I saw the JOY of a huge group of students sharing how to do the Mombo Slide with their principal. I saw JOY as a student showed me the construction they had been working on, as another student explained that SHARING was essential and as a group worked on figuring out the clues they had been working on to see if Santa was a custodian or not.
But even better than that, for me, was the JOY of seeing the work that teams of teachers are doing to make a difference in their schools. Little by little, student by student, the work is being done. The JOY is being shared. And that last JOY I mentioned was on MY face as I went from one warm accepting engaging room to another.
So thank you for a JOY-filled week.
