One Event Does Not Define You

  1. Love this. Thank you for sharing!!

  2. Interesting method for helping adolescents see that there is more than one way to travel through the events that they have experienced, and that there is more than one “shape” to those paths. I like it; it is creative. I wish I had had a teacher like you when I was going through adolescence.

    Lisa you are awesome! These kids are lucky to have you. I also wish I’d had a teacher like you to share this perspective with me at that age.

    You’ve done it again, Lisa! A terrific post! I’m going to share this with my art teacher son! πŸ™‚

  5. Your students are the very lucky ones. If there were only more “yous” in the educational system our kids would flourish!

    Great analogy she uses in this post! She uses it for her student..

    I could relate to it as a betrayed wife too. I’m not healing or recovering nearly as well as I’m told I should be… But I’m doing it my way and I’ll get “there”.. Someday.
