Weekly Update - 10/14/21
This week, our staff had the opportunity to come together to view a film called “Listen.” This movie was created to emphasize the power of listening, especially in schools, and particularly with our students. Listening can be defined by phrases such as “to give one’s attention to a sound,” or “to take notice of and to act on what someone says.” I think it is important to focus on the words “attention” and “take notice.” When we really listen, we observe, we seek to better understand, and we then respond in some way (which is not always with words). As a parent and a counselor, listening to our students is one of the best gifts that we can give our young people. Listening helps us to really know who our students are, what they carry, and what they need. Listening requires focus… it is not possible to multitask while truly listening. When we are distracted with tasks of daily life, when we are busy, when we are overwhelmed with our own thoughts and emotions, it is difficult to listen. Our students need our attention, our time, our presence. I am challenging all of us to make listening to our students a priority—if for only five minutes per day. Let’s give our students this gift.
