Chances are, those teachers you remember for most fondly were the ones who did a pretty simple thing: showed care and actually saw you for you. Since merging my life as a teacher, educational leader and parent this message has only become stronger in importance. I now know amazing parents are all three roles (case and photo in point: my amazing, bloody legendary wife).⠀
Caring doesn't just mean being nice. It is so much more. It is being the person, model or voice others might need to do or be their best. (And yes, sometimes this will be yourself). The best parents, teachers and leaders do this over and over and over again - because they remember to see and know the people around them.
We won't ever do it perfectly, but starting to do it is a bloody good first step. The question is, who will you start with tomorrow?
