So, when I ask the students for ‘their ‘word.
Their ‘existence’ word ...
Their ‘life’ word ...
Most found it very difficult to describe WHO they were being.
They just were doing!!!
They did not know what a ‘being’ was.
You invent who you are?
Who you are being?
Who you want to be?
They find that challenging – at first!
They have forgotten – or is it – they have NEVER known.
Find the word
The word that works for them
NOW, right NOW – Yah!
Mostly they start and choose a ‘safe’ word, like is in the school ‘declaration’.
Respect, responsibility, excellence…
Yet, hey – they already have that!
One girl said ‘respect’!
You already have that – I said.
How about confidence to accept that fact that you have it?
Ok – she says.
I get that.
Our teaching days are memorable, if not for ourselves, for the children. Let's grab those memorable moments and give them momentum. Even the negative are learning tools, and hence useful for us. I am so grateful I have noted these moments, and trust you feel the same. Please send me any moments of yours you would like to share. Happy reading!
