Holistic Teaching: Things That Matter More

Sometimes you read something at the exact right moment and it hits you hard, right in the throat…or the gut…or the heart…but it hits you. It wakes you up. It re-energizes you. It inspires you to do more. Think more. Create more. Question more. It reminds you of why you do what you do in the first place. It reminds you that you, or rather that we, have only just begun to unlock the potential of public education to provide the best possible opportunities and support to the whole being of every single child. We cannot forget this part of our work. We cannot put this part of our work second. We cannot stand idly by while standards, assessments, and bureaucracy take center stage over the emotional well being of our students, our schools, and ourselves.
