Flexibility In School
Adjusting to change with a good attitude
To practice Flexibility, I will:
- not get upset when plans change
- accepting the things I cannot change
- be open to new and different experiences
- learn from my mistakes
- anticipate and prepare for change
The past several years have tested the Flexibility of schools like never before. If someone had told you a year before the Pandemic that you could switch to online school in a matter of DAYS, you would have laughed at them. The truth is, you did it! It took more than days to work out all the kinks, and we are still recovering from its effect on student learning, but you did it. This also happened at a time when your personal life required Flexibility too. Adapting to all of the changes in family dynamics and running a household required boatloads of Flexibility. Review all the changes you endured, all the new things you learned, and all the accomplishments you completed despite the hardships. Pack it up and use it to puff up your Confidence, Resilience, and Positivity. Now strut – you earned it!
