Life's little lessons
I was feeling that way the other day and then randomly out of nowhere, a PreK student stands in front of me and says:
"I know who you are. You're Mrs. Sandoval and you're my school principal. Your job is to keep me safe." I looked at our little 4 year old and said "You're absolutely right".
I learned a few lessons from that little 4 year old in that very moment:
- Yes!!! The broadcast system finally works!
- That student honestly believes that my job is to keep him safe and is holding me accountable every single day.
- Even when it seems as though our students aren't grasping every single lesson, they are definitely listening to our words and our actions.
- This students knows I care about him and his well-being.
That moment alone, defined my number one purpose at Hancock and I will forever love our "SafeKeeper" ritual.
I share this story mostly to encourage you- keep repeating those CHAMPs, keep practicing your classroom rituals, keep reminding them to take CHARGE! Our students ARE listening and YOU are making a huge IMPACT everyday.
