It can be refreshing to be around like-minded people. Last week I had the pleasure of spending time with others who share my love of words! The reason for our connection with others is not important. It’s the connection itself that matters.
Teachers are good at nurturing connections within the classroom. We all know students who need a little more encouragement in order to find or foster friendships.
I can’t imagine how disheartening it would be to feel disconnected or unwelcome. Yet there may be those in our workplace or in our classrooms who do not look forward to being around their peers.
This week, forge a new connection. This week, be the reason someone smiles.
