10 THINGS THAT MATTER (In Your Classroom and the World)

1. People

2. All people

3. Genuine empathy for all of those people

4. Opportunity for all of those people

5. Appreciation of every story of all of those people 

6. Yes, even those people you strongly disagree with. Their story, who they are, what they love, what they need, and what they want to become all matter equally and should be treated as such

7.  A community in which everyone’s best interest is equally considered and valued 

8. A deep rooted belief in the fact that we are all here of each other and for each other and that the collective we is always going to trump the singular I  

9. An inner spirit that wakes up fighting everyday for the betterment of themselves, their community and their world 

10. An inquistive mind that never stops learning, a questioning heart that never stops asking why, and a creative life that never stops believing that each of us has the ability to be the change we seek. Every. Single. Day.
