MY EDUCATIONAL BELIEFS:

Know your babies. Affectively. Behaviorally. Culturally. Developmentally. Educationally.

Open your eyes. Observe. Reflect. Act.

You've got to take care of the Maslow so that you can get to the Bloom.

Be an Upstander not a Bystander.

Don't make assumptions.

Ask questions.

Listen without planning your response, just listen.

Play. Often.

Cultural awareness, responsiveness, proficiency, agility... it all exists on a continuum; it takes work, or you slide. 

Keep learning.

Teach for growth. 

Self-care is essential. Take care of you.

Be the change.

We all need windows and mirrors to grow; don't assume they're only for kids.

As a teacher, you're one stop on a long road...but the memories made and emotions experienced leave a lasting impression. Love the journey.
