Welcome to Friday. Welcome to Inspiration.

Welcome to Friday.

After a full week of teaching, the weekend is often a time of personal restoration and rejuvenation.

In her article "How Educators Can Manage Stress and Build Resilience," Elena Aguilar, a transformational leadership coach, offers a strategy to build emotional resilience: to "notice," "name," and "highlight" "the micro-moments of hope, growth, beauty, and inspiration." 

Thus, your weekend homework:

1. Read Elena Aguilar's full article here.
2. Take some time to name those moments of wonder and growth and hope.
3. Reflect on how you find ways to rejuvenate and be intentional about those practices.
