211 - We Are ALL Developing Learners

We’re all developing learners. Every last one of us.

As adults, we often have the luxury of walking away from learning that proves difficult or doesn’t interest us. Students in our current models of K-12 (or at least K-8) don’t usually have that option.

So when we see our kids in the learning pit, let’s not panic or shame.

Instead, let’s engage in thoughtful conversations. Let’s ask helpful questions. And let’s see what we can do to give them a helping hand.

And we’ll celebrate the growth that follows.

Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice. These short episodes are based on my written reflections, which you can find on the Teachers on Fire Magazine at
