#1 Teaching Tip

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it

Rudyard Kipling

In my last 17 years of teaching, from tutoring to daycare to preschool to elementary to college to now high school, I have learned that—above all—what children need are patient, loving witnesses.

Despite our inclinations to solve their problems, to make their sadness, frustration go away, what they really need, is us holding space for them while they figure life out, at their own pace.
