In starting the New Year, everyone makes wishes, goals, and resolutions. As an educator, it is a timeline to realize what you have not yet accomplished. It can be a defining line of what you still need to do. GH forces me to pause, look at my kids, and see what amazing things they are accomplishing regardless of what is occurring around them. I love watching them in action purely for the selfish reason that it gives me hope for future generations. What, you may ask, are the incredible feats they are achieving? Here are some pictures below that demonstrate the diversity, creativity, and collaboration the next generation is working on. I have learned to examine every activity we are doing and discover the valuable component it showcases that is special to each student. When we slow down and look at education in this light, we are forced to see the child as a whole person and not a component of a system.
