I attended a Standing Tall workshop delivered by Kent Noble in Casper, WY. This was an incredible opportunity, possibly one of the most reflective experiences I have ever had the opportunity to participate in. The challenge to bring ethics and values to my students in such a meaningful way is huge, but one I am up to taking on. This experience will hopefully grow them in ways that they may not realize until later in life.
One of my personal codes that I came away with is, "Every day deserves 110% - all it takes is all you've got".
