Happy Friday to you!
If you are like us here in Alabama, you've been getting lots of snow, too. We've missed school three days this week due to threats of winter storms as well as the actual snow. Here in the south, we are not well-equipped to deal with snow and ice, so our safest option is to stay home and not have parents, staff and children on the roads.
Since it's Valentine's Day, I have two special gifts for you today. The first special gift I have for you is a blog post written by Glennon Doyle. Visit her website, check out her blog, check out her TEDx talk...
But first, check out her blog post titled, "Share this with all the schools, please." In her blog post she writes,
"TEACH ON, WARRIORS. You are the first responders, the front line, the disconnection detectives, and the best and ONLY hope we’ve got for a better world. What you do in those classrooms when no one is watching- it’s our best hope."
The second special gift is the archive from our Monday night twitter chat. It's a "state chat," but everyone's invited. We've had participants from all over the globe to be a part of #ALedchat on Monday nights.
Since it is the week of Valentine's Day, our chat topic was "Is Loving Students Enough?" We had terrific questions and responses... take a peek at what educators think about the topic of love.
Happy Valentine's Day!
