Be Intentional: It's always a choice, even digitally.
I've been thinking a lot about being intentional, lately. I've begun teaching Kindergarten digitally, which is like being a first-year teacher all over again, 21 years later.
How do I build relationship with 22 new faces through a screen? It CAN be done-through INTENTION.
Why am I showing up on their screen every morning?
What do I value about the work I am doing?
How can I authentically live into my values with conviction?
How would you answer these questions? It will be something we need to keep in the forefront of our minds-every day. It's easy to lose focus, when their ZOOM isn't working, microphones aren't muted, passwords fail and TEAMS crashes right before the "bell."
Intentional choices contain strategic plans. A plan for how we will respond when it all goes awry. Because things often go as planned, right?
