I was reading this George Couros blog about smiling the other day about the importance of smiling and being aware of everyone in the learning community. I often think about who I am including when I go about my day, and who I may be excluding. I know that at times I focus solely on the students, and miss out on support staff and families. So this past week my goal was to engage them all with a smile.
Smiling made a bigger difference than I thought. Not only were people more interested in what I was doing, or what I had to say, but I actually felt better about my day too.
