Courage In School

vs. conformity

Overcoming fear by saying and doing what is right

To practice Courage I will:

  • know the truth
  • get help when I am afraid
  • support others when they are right
  • be willing to stand alone
  • help those who are bullied or abused
    “It took Courage”

    The recent years for teachers have been more than challenging.  It took Courage to learn new ways to teach with little time to adapt.  It took Courage to accept that the plans you had made and your goals for the year were out the window.  It took Courage to stay positive and look for the good. It took Courage to make connecting with your students as important as teaching them.  It took Courage to practice self-care and not feel guilty.  It took Courage to build up fellow teachers when your own confidence was elusive.  It took Courage to stay vertical when you wanted to crawl back into bed.  It took Courage to still love teaching despite the difficulties.

    Where will you use your Courage next, now that you have exercised it so thoroughly?
