|Me and Michelle|
Yes, they even had animals out there. They also had buffalo, an ostrich, and goats.
It was truly an amazing conference and I am so thankful that I was picked to be apart of that experience. The conference was very similar to the Love and Logic philosophy and empowering kids.
"If you have a child's heart, you have his head." -Flip Flippen
I feel like, for the most part, I implement this philosophy in my classroom, but there are LOTS of things that can be changed and fixed. (always) The presenter really made this philosophy relevant with our peers. WOW!! - That was a big eye opener! Our presenter (who was AWESOME) said, "Giving affirmation is a leadership skill".
"A leader is someone who sets aside a personal agenda and embraces a greater agenda of serving others." -Flip Flippen
I have LOTS and LOTS of goals and things I want to do within my classroom BUT I now have a goal to make my team a priority. I want to make sure that we are lifting each other up and affirming each other because as you know...........it can get a little crazy hectic at school. I want to decorate a cabinet in our workroom for each one of my team members and have a way to leave each other affirmation notes, ecards (love these things), or treats. I have framed some quotes to place around the workroom.
Pics of workroom coming soon! (once I can get in the school ;) I would love to hear what you do with your team members to help build a stronger team.
Next, on my list of things that I want to share are my author's chairs. Just some cheap Dollar General chairs and a little paint.
Now, we have a special seat to share our writing!!
And finally.......a little bit of school shopping. No outfit is complete without the perfect bow.
No, seriously it's not a bird it's a bow. haha (no, we didn't buy it-but we had a good laugh:)
Have a Terrific Tuesday, friends!!
Don't forget to leave me your thoughts and ideas of building up your teammates.
