For the second term in a row…I’ve been trying to incorporate mindfulness into my classroom experience. This means no daydreaming in class, avid note taking, and trying to follow each idea like it’s brand new—no matter if I’d learned of the topic before. It’s like celebrating every day that I am in class, because I am learning something from an expert in the field. Even if it isn’t new knowledge for me, it’s still a great time to get a new perspective to accommodate into my existing schemas. =]
Now…grades have come out for winter term…and it’s a second term of 5 As!! Holy poop on a stick!
What a fabulous, if unexpected, reward!
