Read in the morning fine words about love.
Quotes for your Love.
“There are two basic motivating forces: fear and love. When we are afraid, we pull back from life. When we are in love, we open to all that life has to offer with passion, excitement and acceptance. We need to learn to love ourselves first, in all our glory and our imperfections. If we cannot love ourselves, we cannot fully open to our ability to love others or our potential to create. Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ―
“And in your smile I see something more beautiful than the stars. Good morning, Love!”
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.” ― Pablo Neruda
“Love is like the wind, you can’t see it but you can feel it.” ― Nicholas Sparks
“Thinking of you keeps me awake, dreaming of you keeps me asleep, being with you keeps me alive. Good morning my love!”

“Our nation pays a high price for our failure to invest in young children. Most of the achievement gap is set before our children walk through the kindergarten door.”W. Steven Barnett is a Board of Governors Professor and Director of the National Institute for Early Education Research at Rutgers University.
“I wholeheartedly believe that one of the roles and responsibilities of the modern educator is to set up the conditions for learners to experience flow.
To achieve a state of flow in the educational environment isn’t nor does it need to be that complicated. It can be as simple as replicating real life learning in more formal schools. ”
Jackie Gerstein, Ed.D.
“The chief trick to making good mistakes is not to hide them — especially not from yourself. Instead of turning away in denial when you make a mistake, you should become a connoisseur of your own mistakes, turning them over in your mind as if they were works of art, which in a way they are. … The trick is to take advantage of the particular details of the mess you’ve made, so that your next attempt will be informed by it and not just another blind stab in the dark.” Daniel Dennett
“Students are bringing more and more knowledge and experience into the educational setting than ever before. When in history have students been able to teach the teachers and be an instrumental part to the educational process as much as they are now? This shift has continued to push the mindset that educators are no longer simply dispensers of knowledge; but rather are facilitators and instigators of self-directed learning by students. In this environment, educators can learn just as much from their students as the students can learn from them”
“It’s time for teachers to build their practice around prompting questions and not guiding solutions. This makes for a better and more meaningful journey for the learners.”
Richard Wells, Global Top 12 Edu Blogger
“Educators and edtech companies need to foster a more robust and collaborative relationship in order to further innovate classrooms and schools.”
“Schools of the future will be far more focused on ecological learning for community and environmental improvement. There is at least a century of real-life improvement projects in communities and the environment that kids and adults can work together on to adjust the health of our planet.” C. M. Rubin
“Do We Teach Thinking Skills? No. And as a result in our society answers enjoy a privileged position above questions. By doing this we are devaluing curiosity and encouraging people to accept what they are told. And that must change.Our schools are so focused on answers that questioning has been reduced to obscurity. “Alex Terego, Terego Enterprise Training

This week teachers quotes
“We just have to do it and breathe at the same time. We need to be alive in the room with our students as we write. Our students need to see in us what we’re hoping for in them, and no other writer can do that for them because we’re the only ones breathing in the room with them” Katie Wood Ray
“Deeper questioning – asked correctly from the outset – anticipates a deeper response from students. When lesson planning, is it useful to pre-plan your key questions for the class/students by keeping in mind lesson objectives and success criteria. Every teacher should ask themselves, do we want students to develop critical thinking skills or to deepen their subject knowledge?
If so, this will determine what type of question to ask and how to word it and ask it.”
Ross Morrison McGill
“Knowing personally the stress that public school teachers face, we are planning a mindfulness program for the teachers and staff of our school as well.
Going through life in the present moment is so much better than living in the past and worrying about the future. Armed with mindfulness, I’m now able to help others experience this difference for themselves.” Patrick Delaney
“Study by faculty members at West Point finds students perform better academically when laptops and tablets are banned from the classroom.” Carl Straumsheim
“The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that 65 percent of today’s schoolchildren will be employed in jobs that don’t exist today.
Here’s the problem: If we prepare students for those jobs — the ones that took US by surprise — they’ll be 10 or 15 years behind when they hit the workforce.”
“What would a simple and relational based mobile learning platform look like?
I still think that the lack of a keyboard is the killer. The fundamental flaw of mobile-only learning is that typing is bad – and when typing does not work nothing else in online learning can work. We need to type to construct complex arguments. We need to type to attach evidence to our assertions. We need to type to engage, rebut, and persuade.
How in the world in mobile learning possible without a keyboard?”
“They know their reading levels.
They all have Google Drive.
They are making PowerPoints.
They are four and five.”
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater
