Celebrate the Remarkable.

celebrate-image So happy to Celebrate with Ruth Ayres this weekend! 

What was remarkable about your day? I’m noticing and celebrating all the remarkable things this week. And, if you’ve ever spent a day (or an hour really) with teachers getting ready for the school year… you’ll know the definition of remarkable. Quick!  Go thank a teacher, any teacher. If you need to find a teacher, look for the people at target, looking tired, but still loading their carts with school supplies before they go back to school this weekend.

I had a remarkable first week in my new role as an instructional coach. . . So much to notice…

What was remarkable?
New team, children and teachers at the heart
(#truth)
Time is always short
No tired like beginning of the school year teacher tired
…but coach tired is a thing too

What was remarkable?
Feeling welcomed in new places
Hugs, smiles and even cheers
The old song keeps coming into my head, like I’m 5 years old again
Make new friends, but keep the old…One is silver and the other’s gold

What was remarkable?
Listening to learn about
people
classrooms
grade levels
schools
leadership
collaboration
confusion

What was remarkable?
Questions I can’t answer
So many questions I can’t answer
The learning I need to do
Jumping in
And holding back

Love this quote that came in my inbox today. . .

  1. Hi, I do remember and picked up the granddaughters yesterday, met their new teachers and thanked them for a wonderful week. Best wishes in your new role. I transitioned to that before I retired, and remember ‘so many questions’ too. You might enjoy the site Choice Literacy if you don’t already know it! Some parts are free & you can subscribe to get more. You’ll see many familiar names writing!

  2. but coach tired is a thing too-It is so rest up and be the marvelous self you are. Children are waiting for your inspiration. Celebrate the remarkable is such a good-feeling thought!
