Intentional actions go a long way in connecting with other humans...... good and bad.
I was walking a long the waterfront the other night, I noticed an alarming number of people enjoying their company, the view, and the evening through their phones. It was so sad to see kiddos trying to gain attention and groups of people interacting with their phones instead of each other. 💔 I know we are all digitally connected and technology is paramount in progress- but we cannot forget the importance of enjoying other people.... especially when the scenery is amazing!☀️ It is our relationships that support and value our uniqueness authentically.💖
In today’s digital world, connecting with others is an intentional act. It does not always just happen. It is easy to hide behind the internet. I challenge each person to step out from their screen a little more this month- watch a sunset with someone or extend a conversation a little longer✨ Teaching is one of the few careers left that relies on human connection. The further we go into our inclusion journey the more sacred our connections will be. Through our relationships with our students and the relationships within our learning communities all our students will develop respect and understanding of the importance in difference and uniqueness. Our students will feel pride and value in who they are and what they contribute to the group. Use technology as a resource in your inclusive communities, but use relationships as your foundation🙌
