Words of Wisdom
Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience.
~ Thomas Jefferson
Wise choices produce a clear conscience which produces more happiness in our lives, right? It's a bit of a Catch 22 because we can make wiser choices when we have a clear conscience, one not clouded with guilt. Young people tend to focus on present conditions, not considering the negative consequences of today's poor choices. When we encourage them to make choices based on honesty, respect, and kindness, we help them create lives not cluttered with the guilt that steals joy. And if we practice what we teach, we may enjoy greater contentment that isn't dependent on the condition of our lives.
With something to think about . . .
TECH TIP OF THE WEEK
The series is all about growth mindset as it pertains to classrooms. The series introduces students, parents, and teachers to big ideas or trends in education. ClassDojo's Big Ideas does this through the use of videos and accompanying discussion guides.
