My Letter to Santa for Educators

Dear Santa,

This letter is written in hopes that you will provide all educators with the following gifts for Christmas:

·         Insatiable desire to learn new things.

·         Aspiration to make an impact beyond the walls of the classroom/office.

·         The willingness to take risks and accept the occasional failure (see my previous post on failure)

·         The ability to focus on what matters most and eliminate the clutter.

·         Time for reflection and consideration of alternative methods.

·         Collaborative spirit- together we all achieve more!

·         The ability to engage students.

Santa, these gifts would not only be advantageous for the educators that receive them, but the students they serve would also benefit greatly.

I hope preparations are going well at the North Pole and I hope to see you Christmas Eve.

I’ll have some cookies and milk waiting on you.

Merry Christmas!
