Sarah's Notes

As our nation gathers this weekend to celebrate our independence with family and friends, there’s no doubt that the events in Charleston are having a profound impact on the ways we think about this year’s holiday. Our CEO, Pat Wasley, has taken the time to help us reflect.

This week I’m also reflecting, but doing so with my kids in Rocky Mountain National Park. When we started our little adventure, I reminded them of one of our vacation rules, which is: every day offer to share something with someone else. Perhaps simple, but it’s turned out to be powerful: kindness that begets kindness, the start of a conversation, a softening of defenses. In the spirit of sharing, I thought I’d share a few short strategy videos from my classroom. And remember that you too have amazing insights and ideas to share with your own professional learning networks. Give it a try, offer to share, and see what reverberates back!
