Words of Wisdom

Lost and Found

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
~ Mahatma Gandhi

Educators give of themselves day in, day out, not to mention all the many, many hours over the standard workweek spent grading, counseling, organizing and preparing. Where on earth would you find another minute to sign yourself up to volunteer? It sounds counterintuitive, but studies have shown that the more time you give in service, the more time it seems you actually have. When your time is being spent effectively helping others, it advances your efficiency, ability and confidence. Being of service to others doesn't have to be a huge, burdensome commitment, just enough time to lose yourself and your worries in the best way.

With something to think about . . .

TECH TIP OF THE WEEK

Check out Buncee HERE...it's a tool to create multimedia stories.


What is a Buncee?
At its core a Buncee is essentially an online slideshow. But you can save your Buncee offline as an interactive PDF which makes it a great way for students to build ebooks. A Buncee can also be used as an online invitation to an event. When you have completed the creation of your Buncee you can select "RSVP" when you share it and recipients will have an option to register their interest in attending your event.

Happy Birthday!
