"Break the Glass!" - Make the Most of Every Opportunity

On Friday, September 8, I had the opportunity to talk to all the girls via PE about girls empowering girls vs girls hating girls. I was able to share how we stand on shoulders of women who have come before us and sacrificed so that we can access opportunities that would not have been possible if it were not for them. We talked about glass ceiling where the sacrifices of women have cracked portions of it but it is still not completely shattered; how when we degrade each other with words and behaviors that pit us against each other, we dishonor those who came before us. After four periods of presentation, a group of girls came up to me during lunch and started sharing their dreams. Suddenly they formed a group and said, "Let's break the glass!" I was so moved that something resonated with each of them to chant that statement publicly. I pray that this idea of empowerment will take root and will remain in them until they are adults. It was a moment that is forever etched in my mind. I encourage each of you to be sensitive to moments like these that sometimes present themselves at the most inopportune time, during a lunch supervision or during instruction, and embrace the lesson thats the moments present. When you do, our mission of changing the educational trajectories of our students will be transformed.
