We Remember, We Heal, We Act

Saturday, December 14, 2013

As educators, we remember and honor our fallen colleagues and their students from Sandy Hook School. We honor them each day in our classrooms in which we continue their dream of teaching our children. We honor their memory with our service. Join with teachers everywhere in committing random acts of kindness to show our love for Sandy Hook.

A year ago today our lives as educators changed forever. It is hard to believe that it has been a year and it is still so fresh in our minds, perhaps it always will be. Being a former kinder teachers and current first grade teacher, the events of that day are unfathomable. My heart still hurts for the families in Newtown. 
I have a beautiful piece of art hanging above my desk that an artist created in remembrance of the teachers and students who lost their lives in the tragedy at Sandy Hook. Often times when all the *stuff* involved with being a teacher is starting to get to me, I take a moment to regroup by looking at the picture. How quickly my thoughts and priorities can change when I stop to reflect on what really matters - the amazing young learners within the four walls of my classroom.  

The victim's families of Sandy Hook have asked that December 14 be designated as a day to perform Random Acts of Kindness to honor those who lost their lives. So show your love to our fallen colleagues and the victim's families and do something nice for someone else. 

This amazing FREE packet from A Year of Many Firsts is a great resource to help your young students understand Random Acts of Kindness and how they can affect others with kindness. Thank you Lyndsey for sharing!
