Sharing is caring. I feel it is vital that educators follow this motto in their relationships with staff, students, and parents. It is through this motto that we grow, learn, and collaborate. Sharing can come in many forms and it can be as simple as sharing a smile to sharing a unit to sharing an idea. Sharing allows good ideas and good practice to spread and flourish. Sharing can come in many sizes too. It does not have to be a 390 page report ... it can be a quick thought as even a mighty oak comes from a small seed. As educators we need to be role models for our students and sharing is definitely something to demonstrate and encourage. That's why creating and posting to a blog is a great place to start. Blogging is a great way to share ideas, materials, experiences, and reflections. Your sharing can inspire, assist, and affirm others. You never know when something you share will make a difference but if you don't share it will remain still and lose that opportunity to become bigger than you can imagine.
