Endless possibilities when you know that #youmatter
This is the best of the best! Forget about receiving “snail mail” over the summer from your new teacher. If I were a student in Aviva Dunsiger’s classroom I would be absolutely giddy with anticipation about starting the school year with my new teacher!
To learn more about #youmatter, watch Angela Maiers’ Ted Talk: You Matter. #youmatter has always been my mantra. Labeled and tracked early as a dyslexic student, I had few encounters with teachers like Aviva and Angela. Once I began my teaching career in 1993, I was determined to make sure that each and every student was recognized, appreciated and celebrated. In one of my earlier posts, Do You See Me? I shared this thought, “Make it a point to see me. Recognize me. Appreciate me. Celebrate me. I’ll be willing to go the extra mile for you if you do!” Watching Aviva’s welcome video to her students does all of this and so much more!
Share your thoughts and insights. How can we integrate more #youmatter opportunities in classrooms around the world?
