I’ve got a blue/cream tortie rag doll cat named Elsa that I love and hate simultaneously. No, she wasn’t named after the Disney character, her name comes from the magnificent lion in the book/movie Born Free.
I write about what I’d like to read. Envisioning new ways of teaching, leading learning and living is on my mind most of the time. I think we’re letting our students down. We’re not guiding them to innovate and be the thought leaders this world needs. I think many of us are just going through the motions, getting through the day rather than living each moment of the day.
In 2018 I wrote a book, Practicing Presence: Simple Self-Care for Educators. https://www.stenhouse.com/content/practicing-presence
Thank goodness I chose the title, Practicing Presence, because trying to stay in the present moment is taking an incredible amount of practice. This blog will share the tips, tools, routines and rituals that I “try on” to live a meaningful life, one that is spent enjoying the present moment. It’s really all we have.
