Inspiration comes from funny places sometimes.
This week marks our first week of state testing
and I have to say, I feel just as exhausted as the kids.
Not to mention, stress levels are a little high around campus.
So in an attempt to hide from the negativity and the stress
I hid in my classroom, threw on some Iron and Wine Pandora,
and checked my email.
And there was this happy little gem of inspiration.
The perfect encouraging video to brighten my day.
Today I showed this video to my kids
as a method to lighten the mood amidst the anxiety of testing
and remind my kids life goes on beyond this almighty test.
I have to admit, as I sat at my back table, and enjoyed this video with them
I did get a little teary eyed.
Every kid was glued to these words from Kid President
and genuinely enjoyed every minute of his words.
Sometimes when we feel like giving up,
its the exact moment we just need a little push to keep going.
A little bit of inspiration from an unexpected place.
Thanks, Kid President. Thanks for your pep talk.
