School is my happy place. As a teacher, I always believed that getting to know my students first and building relationships with them was the most important thing I could do. As an administrator, I still believe this to be true only now, I have many more students that I can have a positive impact. Whether you have a school of a few hundred students or a few thousand, it is essential to know every student. Just as Jimmy Casas, states in his book, Culturize, “Every student, every day.” When you have a bond of trust and respect with a student, they will work hard for you. You do not deal with discipline problems; instead, you enjoy students’ excitement for learning and students leading your school with kindness.
During the holiday season, we see many students give back to the community through service-learning. Service-learning engages students in volunteer opportunities and projects. It can be thought of as an extension of the classroom. Students practice setting and achieving goals as well as working together as a group. These skills can help students academically and in their daily lives.
