The goal is that each day will be purpose driven and meaningful in a way that engages and excites all students in the learning process. When we notice that much of our space is filled with the “silly, stupid things” that get in the way of learning, it’s time to step back and ask ourselves, “What really matters?” Last week I asked that very question. Company members retreated to a comfortable writing place and put pencil to paper. When given time to reflect, we can see what is happening around us and inside us. Then we are able to recognize the moments and experiences that affect us positively and negatively. We are more cognizant of what really matters.
