In these days of chasing standardized test metrics, common cores, budget crises, pandemics, and protests, it is easy to forget that schools are the setting for the life of the spirit. Each school has a soul, and so does each teacher, principal, student, parent, and support staff.
Great schools are acts of love. They come from the deepest core of interactions between students and teachers. But we teachers and principals and support staff can run dry. Our lights can be extinguished.
The reflections in this little book are reminder notes about how we educators abide in a love that is a mighty spring and how we give and receive that love every day.
