Check out the writers, readers and teachers here. Thanks to Stacey, Anna, Beth, Tara, Dana and Betsy at “Two Writing Teachers” for creating a place for us to share our work.
Based on Stacey’s inspiration (and working to write more spontaneously) I went to Kendra Limback’s post this morning that was the result of reading Brown Girl Dreaming by Jackie Woodson. Simply.amazing.Must.read.HERE!
I Believe in students.
I Believe in being Kind. All the time; Choose Kind.
I Believe in listening to students who will set the pace. That’s when real life happens and we really do “smell the roses”.
I Believe it’s sometimes necessary to “sprint” and other times to “stroll” down learning paths..
I Believe in FUN at school.
I Believe in collaboratively creating a space to learn.
I Believe that our lives need stories and books. Great ones!
I Believe in a growth mindset. No goal is too high to reach.
I completely Believe in the power of a community to solve its problems.
I Believe in trust. Trust the child who needs the patience afforded by “Not Yet!”
I Believe in truth!
I Believe our students are our Miracles. Our future!
I saw two basic definitions when I looked up creed:
- a system of Christian or other religious beliefs or
- a set of beliefs or aims that guide someone’s actions. I chose the latter.
