Happy New Year!

  • Published on December 30, 2016

We wish you and your loved ones a very Happy New Year!

May 2017 be filled with love, health, peace, and joy.

Thank you for your support in  2016 as readilearn took its first steps into the online world.

We look forward to readilearn resources being a regular part of your teaching program in 2017.

For a little inspiration this week, we are sharing a video featuring Chen Miller, a teacher in Israel.

Chen Miller, who was a special needs student, is “now in the system to change it, to show that it can be done differently”. She is now making a difference to the lives of her own students.

She says,
Teachers, headmasters, educators,

your thoughts and the words

that you use about a child

will at some stage

become the thoughts and the words that the child thinks about himself …

Remember always that education

is the forming of impressions on souls.”

I’ll see you next week with some suggestions for the beginning of the school year. In the meantime, have a great week.

Thank you for reading.

Happy teaching and learning.

Norah

    Chen sounds like such an inspiring teacher! Thanks for sharing – and belated Happy New Year to you too. Only a few weeks late!!!

    I hope the year has started well for you. We’re nearly a month into it. Doesn’t time fly?

    What a beautiful reminder, as a teacher and a parent: “your thoughts and the words that you use about a child will at some stage become the thoughts and the words that the child thinks about himself …”. It’s not always easy, but we all need to keep this in mind even (especially) when things get difficult.

    Happy New Year! 🙂

    Thank you, Sarah.
    As you say, it may not always be easy, but it is important, to be mindful of our words. I read a study (years ago) that tracked comments made by teachers throughout the day and found that the negative comments far outweighed the positive. I was shocked and determined to adjust the balance in my classroom. I hope I managed to keep the negatives to a minimum.
    Best wishes to you and yours for 2017.

    Now that was gorgeous! Good on you, Chen Miller and thanks for sharing this beautiful, moving video, Norah!

Please share your thoughts. I love it when you do.
