Excitement makes me EXCITED!

I advise a group of great student council kiddos.

Today, the officer group went to our superintendent and shared the platform they are going to use to run for a Texas Association of Student Councils state office.  Included in the platform is a huge project involving a 5K event that the students want to be something MORE than just the 5k part.

I’m so proud of all of the things they have come up with for the platform and can’t wait to see them present themselves at the state convention.

They were so prepared and ready to share and brainstorm at this meeting this morning.  They wanted to get help from our superintendent’s resources and ideas.  I knew they would do great with their presentation, but I was not expecting their EXCITEMENT when they returned from the meeting.

All the students had a kind of fire in their eyes when they returned.  They were all talking about ideas and things they needed to do to get going on this BIG FUNDRAISER.

They had been kind of dragging their feet, not really on purpose.  They are all so busy and I was out sick last week–none of that helped!

So, after we have this upcoming 3-day weekend (THANK YOU MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.!), I’m interested to see what they will get done on Tuesday when we return.  This will be a major learning adventure for all of them and they are ALL EXCITED about it!  Their excitement makes me EXCITED!

You have an AMAZING idea!

LOVE THIS LITTLE VIDEO!  I have to say, I found it on another blog (click here to read it)  that was talking about the introverted student and how, as teachers, we should utilize technology to help those students share their thoughts.

My thoughts on the video…

You truly are your worse critic.  You downplay the awesome things you do.  Your drawings, writings, your ability to sing or dance, and your ideas seem humdrum to you.  WHY do we do this?!  We have great ideas!  When we collaborate and put ideas together–they are EVEN BETTER!  Don’t hold back.  What you offer may be the small snowball that turns into a snow-bolder!  Allow your thoughts to become words and don’t be afraid of sharing!  You never know …the stuff you are holding back could be the next BIG THING!
