How much do you know the students you teach? The families you serve? Your co-workers you see each day? How about your neighbors, community, or the agencies providing service to others?
I share with you my one word for the year commitment. I hope you have selected one or at least thinking about one you can focus on for 2022. In addition to the one word, I always like to select an action step to complete to help me enrich my life.
I started painting in 2021 and completed four paintings I gifted to others. I gave my first one to my husband and it hangs in our home. The second one I gave to my daughter and she has it displayed in her home. I am not sure about the other two I gave to my sister-in-law and friend. They all seemed to be so happy with the paintings and this made me feel good. So I am going to plan to paint one painting every month starting in January. It is a lofty goal but I am just going to make an effort to paint monthly. I have purchased the materials and I am ready to go.
So, what are ways you can get to know others and get to know your self at a deeper level? If you are working in an Educational setting I have the Artifact Bag activity I have done I am placing in the resource page of my website. This is a fun way to get to know each other. I am guessing it would work in other settings as well!
