As another school year began yesterday, I reflected on the staff and students who engaged on a new path together for 180 days. Through all talking and sharing of how they had spent their summers, an underlying veil of uncertainty was cautiously stepped around. Bout of anxiety about the unknown were strewn about, but I knew this much to be true as I sat with them throughout the day and talked.
The only thing constant in this school year is change. In order to keep centered and connected, the best advice that I could share was for them to breathe in and breathe out. You have got this.
