The Beauty in a Silkworm One summer, when I was about 7 years old, we visited my family in India. My dad showed us the house where he was born that was also near the park where he saw Gandhi (yes, THAT Gandhi). In the back room was this large glass container that, to me, simply looked dirty and filled with cobwebs or something unidentifiable. He explained that those were silkworms our family raises to be processed into silk threads that make beautiful clothing.  To this day, I am amazed at how something that looks like it should be swept up [...]

It’s All About Perspective This past weekend, City Neighbors staff had their first days off of school since the start of the school year. So far this year, every day that students didn’t have school, staff had progress report conferences or meetings. Some folks might complain that a four-day weekend was too short or went by too quickly… and some folks might say that four days without an alarm clock or schedule was glorious. It’s all about how you look at it. We have 15 days of school between today and Winter Break.  How might we use that time?  How can [...]

  Celebrating Learning There is a photo of me at about four years old -- taps shoes on, a blue tutu and plaid bodysuit that could only exist in the 1970s, standing in the middle of a line of other four-year-olds on a stage. One leg is extended and my head is turned to my right, checking my moves against the child next to me. No matter how many times we practiced our heel-toe-shuffle steps, it was all forgotten once we stepped onto that stage.  For the adults, it was adorable, and no one expected to be watching the Rockettes or [...]

Known. Loved. Inspired Kindness -- the quality of being friendly, generous, and considerate.  We embody kindness through smiles, handshakes, considering other people’s needs, stepping aside when someone needs space, and paying attention to one another. In the mornings, when shaking hands, I try to get each student to pause for a moment, make eye contact, shake my hand or wave, and say good morning or hello. I want them to know that, even in the midst of trying to get somewhere, there is always time to stop and acknowledge another person. I want every student to REALLY know they are Known [...]
