When we share stories with one another we become bound together in powerful ways. Stories provide hope: they have the potential to shine a light into the darkness and challenge us to change our thinking. Stories matter. Stories are powerful. Each month, the Department of Curriculum and Instruction partners with the RPS equity specialists and American Indian Liaison to share the stories of those in our own backyard who are often silenced.
We, as educators, don’t always get to hear how our students are growing outside of the classroom. Yet, it is important to find out some other ways our students may be experiencing growth and seeking to fulfill their potential besides academically.
I believe every student is growing in some area of life and below are ten ways to categorize individual growth. People are often seeking how to prioritize their lives and this is also a strategic plan to keep things in the proper perspective.
Everyone gets the same amount of time each day, but many people fail to keep life in order; therefore, much time is wasted, dreams are deferred, and needs go unmet. If we all could implement this system of time management and progress monitoring, we all could feel more complete and give more to the world around us.
