World Teachers' Day!

 Principal ponderings...

So apparently it is World Teachers' Day today.  I feel like it should be World Teachers' Day every day.  Sorry I can't be in school to appreciate all of you, but I will share this statement that was posted today in honor of all of you.  Here is a snippet from the statement and you can go to the link to read the whole statement.

"In this crisis, teachers have shown, as they have done so often, great leadership and innovation in ensuring that #LearningNeverStops, that no learner is left behind. Around the world, they have worked individually and collectively to find solutions and create new learning environments for their students to allow education to continue. Their role advising on school reopening plans and supporting students with the return to school is just as important.”

Thank you all for the leadership, compassion, dedication, innovation, and love you have shown for all of our students. I appreciate you. And I honor you today and every other day. You are truly difference makers, and our students continue to grow into amazing human beings because of you!

It is also the kick-off day for Global Read Aloud. Sadly, think this is the last year that Pernille Ripp is doing GRA. But if you want to do anything related to it with your students, here is the link:

Happy reading!

Currently reading:

Looks like I will have a lot of time this week to do some reading!  I plan on listening to a book called Kids These Days: A Game Plan for (Re)Connecting with Those we Teach, Lead, and Love.  A recommendation from a friend and seems like a good time to read this one. 

I also have book lined up in my Audible account that a friend recommended, Making Bombs for Hitler.  Will be diving into that one too.
