This is what empathy looks and feels like

Imagine if we applied this same sort of in/sight to ourselves and our schools? How would our behavior change? How would our definitions of school, teacher and student success need to change? And what might we become more likely to engender as a result?

    Wow! Every teacher should see this, at least twice a year.

    I know, right? Actually, I want to produce a video with the same idea but in a school.

    Actually, as a former teacher and mother of 12 children, this is what good teachers and parents do on a regular basis: read children’s unspoken cues and find a way to speak/listen/relate to those rather than to what we see on the surface.

    Indeed it is.

    Meanwhile, 12 children?!? Holy holy . . .

    Yup. 12 children. I’m Varda, the women with the 12 kids. I’ve written about that. Luckily, I got used to them one at a time, like every other parent.
