We spend a great deal of time in elementary school teaching our students both academic and social skills. We also have the opportunity to model for them behavior that shows pride in who we are and what we do. As educators, we teach so much just by modeling the behaviors we hope to encourage in our students. One way we can model is by showing that we ALL have something important to say and a contribution to make. We all have life experiences that we can relate to the classroom and we all have a passion to help others (that's why we are here!).
Now, I'm not saying that everyone has to start up a blog of their own. But I certainly hope that every child and every adult in our school feels that what they do and say is important to someone...because it is! And the things you say and the experiences you share are meaningful and probably impact more people and than you will ever know.
What you have to say IS important!
