Each day the Hilliard City Schools Administration Team receives an email from our Superintendent, Dr. John Marschhausen. Yesterday’s email was entitled, “Savor Each Day”. I love the title of this email and I love the message even more. Dr. Marschhausen reminded us that in Hilliard City Schools “we have an uncommon drive to pursue excellence” and that we can’t let the day to day stop us from reflecting on the journey.
Would you believe that we have already completed 1/3 of our journey this year! We are lucky to still have 2/3 of the year remaining. We cannot waste our moments! Our students deserve the best experience possible each day that they step foot in their school. Let’s all seize the day. What are we waiting for? Now is the time to reflect. Now is the time to goal set. We have 116 days left in the school year. That’s a long time to make a difference. And that’s also a lot of time to waste.
What are those things you’ve been saying you want to try? Kid EdCamps, genius hours, passion projects, blogging, connections outside the classroom, using technology or social media more purposefully, or providing more student choice? Take the plunge.
My challenge to you is this, fill out the Google doc below. Answer the reflection questions and then, do it. Put your name on it! Stand up and own it!
