Plus 2

It’s Monday, the first day of the work week, and teachers all over our country are back in the thick of it with standardized tests and final activities nipping at their heels. Students are in a flurry of activity trying to get all their work turned in so they can get  the end-of-the-school-year credit they so deserve.

Teaching is not easy; and learning is not easy for everyone – but what an incredible opportunity the school environment is for building relationships with others. Please take a few minutes to listen to veteran teacher Rita F. Pierson share with us the wisdom of teaching from the heart. “Plus 2” (You’ll see what that means!)

Enjoy and be inspired.

Peace friends,

    Chuck: I love this video and, in fact, just shared it on Facebook, something I hardly ever do. I posted it in honor of my hardworking teacher-and-mom niece Colleen, but grandparents like me can learn from it, too. Very, very good.

    What a great example of what we as teachers strive to be every day. She is spot on. Relationships are the key to successful learning. Thanks for posting this Chuck!
