Take Time

17 Mar

“When you take the time to talk to students, remember: the first moments are sacred; they involve the honouring of the dignity of each life that you meet. Take the time to listen with your heart.”

– Aboriginal teacher

This quote resonated with me greatly.  It is from the Our Words, Our Ways: Teaching First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Learners document prepared by the Alberta Ministry of Education.  Find a free pdf copy here: http://education.alberta.ca/media/307199/words.pdf
