The Power of Conversation
This is good learning. But it is not the BEST part of this trip.
The best part is having TIME to spend with these three, talking about our families, our pets, our lives outside of school. We talk about the challenges we are facing, both in and out of school, and supporting each other as we come up with ideas for how to handle the situations that might be less than ideal. We CELEBRATE the good things that are happening and that our kids (our personal children and our students) are achieving.
In the hustle and bustle of the school year, the time for these kinds of conversations is often lost, and that's really a shame. All of us need these connections in our lives - they enrich our days and help us to feel less alone.
I'm looking forward to more great conversation tomorrow.
