Just two days left in the 30-day Student Engagement Challenge. I am grateful to all of you who have made this challenge a part of your day. Thanks for connecting in a personal way with students each day and for sharing your stories with me.
I have found this challenge to be quite fulfilling for me personally. We all got into this profession with a desire to make a difference in the lives of students. Knowing the meaningful connections you are making with students has been almost as much fun as the challenge itself.
I would like to conclude this exercise by continuing with this thread of gratitude. Find a way this week to express gratitude to a student. Thank them for opening the door for you, for giving you a smile on a day you really needed it, or maybe for dressing like summer because it reminds you there’s hope for spring. I will be thanking Jacob Beck for offering me a lick of his ice cream cone the other day. He made my day and I have been smiling about it ever since.
Have a good week!
