The State of the Classroom

January 25th, 2011

Almost anyone involved in the education of children today, will tell you of the challenges they face on a daily basis. Challenges for the educators because of the challenges children face. Children are asked to grow up so fast and are expected to do so much at such a young age. This proves burdensome even under the best of circumstances. A lot of the stresses children are having to deal with are showing up in the classroom for teachers to address in ever increasing numbers. At times, keeping order in the classroom seems to be a bigger challenge than the teaching.
No matter the age of the individual or the situational stresses we all have to deal with, one thing remains constant, we all can be kind to one another. Being kind disarms any feeling of  animosity one might have toward another. Kindness is the peacemaker between all of us. One Million Acts Of Kindness is the constant companion to the peacemaker, it is the lifetime goal every child in every classroom should embrace, improving the state of every classroom.
