Expectations, Directions and Orders

Do you have expectations for others? What about yourself? Do you have expectations for yourself? Do others place expectations on you? Do you have directions or orders to accomplish?

Exactly what are the differences? How do you handle these as a leader, staff member, parent, and student?

Quotes about learning

  • “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.”
  • “Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
  • “Study is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think.”
  • Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
  • “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
  • “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.”
  • “The beautiful thing about learning is that nobody can take it away from you.”

These are just a few quotes about learning, and I did not put who they belong to, but I will during the week. Which one from the list would you select as your learning quote? Maybe you have one of your own; please share.

Inspire

Take a little time this week to inspire someone or others. Holiday times are not always great times for everyone. Sometimes these days are mixed with memories of lost ones, illness, or difficult struggles we are not aware of in the lives of others. Help provide a little inspiration by letting people know there is always hope in the world with people like you.

Checking In

I received a phone call right before Thanksgiving that shocked me. My husband experienced some health issues a few months ago. Not to tell they entire story to take away from my purpose in this post, it was disturbing news and we did not get the quality care with answers. My husband, niece, and nephew are in the medical field. My niece asked one of the doctors she works with for an opinion, and they were all so helpful. This young 55-year-old doctor went into her office and committed suicide this past week.

A young woman, in the practice of saving lives each day, took her own life. I did not meet her personally, but I was thankful for her help. I was so saddened by this news. It reminded me of how checking in and out with students each day is something we should do with everyone.

I had a system of a protocol as a middle school principal that no bus would be unloaded until an adult was there to welcome them to school. Adults would also be present to send them home with a positive of can’t wait to see you tomorrow. Let’s talk more about checking in and out this week.
