Join us for a month of writing!
Yesterday was a tough day for two of my students. I'm not sure what to blame. Perhaps the leftover full moon. Or the two days of no outside recess breaks. Or the constant struggles they are fighting at home that they have no control over. Or the thought of spring break and how much our kids worry about not being in school.
I walked out of school deflated, reflecting on what I could have done differently.
Today will be a better day for two of my students. There is no one or nothing to blame. I will check in with both of them in the morning. And provide them with words of encouragement. And have a little more patience and understanding. And remind them how much I care about them and their success at school.
I will walk out of school knowing that I did everything I could to make their day right.
