the teacher is the learner.

Standard

what an honor and a pleasure

it was

to have spent two days 

with intelligent caring educators from many places 

coming together 

to

share, discuss, question, wonder, listen,

learn from each other

about leading

 respectful, compassionate, joyful, creative, curious, playful, democratic classrooms

for young children

where they begin

to discover and grow a love of learning

about the world near and far

every experience

preparing them for what is beyond

this comforting place

they call school.

is not the limit of your possibilities.”

decision.

Standard

someone at the snack table 

noticed something and shared it with others

they all tested it out

made a conclusion 

and a perfect decision.

they said that if the carrots made a crunchy sound and snapped

they tasted better and would eat them

if they didn’t, and were bendy

they would donate them to scruffy the guinea pig. 

everyone agreed.

a win- win

 a perfect and brilliant solution 

and a great life lesson for the future foodies.

“a good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers. “
