    Episode #6 - WARNING: It is The First Day

    Episode #6 - WARNING: It is The First Day

    Tomorrow's the first day of school. This day is usually an exciting time when you wear a new outfit, meet parents for the first time and see how the children have grown over the summer. It's going to be a little different tomorrow.

    We begin with distance learning exclusively in my school district and county. I didn't know what I wanted to say to my teachers to encourage them, be inspiring, and somehow take this load from their shoulders. There has been a lot of concern, perfectionism, frustration, and overload.

    Then I received a group text from one of my teachers that says it better than I ever could. "Let's allow this school year to be awesome. Please don't throw away or don't throw a label or judgment on it before it begins. It may just surprise us in a big, beautiful way."

    I love this quote and intention. Big and beautiful anything demands strategies and skills. Here are seven things to do that will make these first few weeks of school awesome.

    Episode #5 - Six Minutes to a Perfect Class

    Here we go! We are launching school on line. It's going to be really easy to focus on the technology, to focus on the pedagogy, to focus on the lessons, the assessment data, but you know, better than I, the most important part is building those relationships with our students. If they don't think, or they don't know that you care, they will not care about school. You guys rock the instruction. Let's talk a little bit about relationships.

    Enjoy,
    Lynn

    Episode #4: Why Does My Boss Scare Me?

    Episode #4: Why Does My Boss Scare Me?

    Has anyone noticed that the world has gone crazy? There is divisiveness, fear, pain, and loneliness​. I know that can be part of life and part of education, and yet it seems the world has gone mad.
    I believe that we are all doing the best we can, based on our experience and knowledge, and education. We do better when we know better.

    In this episode, we explore the causes of misunderstanding and miscommunication amongst teachers and other educators.

    Enjoy,
    Principal Lynn Hardin

An Apple A Day 🍎 by Lynn Hardin

Thank you Lynn for encouraging & inspiring educators as we venture through uncharted territory! I thoroughly enjoyed your calming technique called 5-4-3-2-1! I would even use this with my young scholars. I’m putting my thoughts about “Distance Learning” to rest, ignoring the media, and focusing on ME! ❤️ Thank you!🙏🏻Jill
