I'm trying to think more about desired behaviors. What do I want from my students and from myself? For myself, I want to be more patient and calm. I wish I were a robot teacher, always friendly and rational. Like Roz in The Wild Robot. The Wild Robot is the best book in the universe. We have ten more pages to read and I don't want it to end. Roz the Robot considers her purpose in life and I've been mulling mine over as well. Roz the Robot is here to help others. I guess I'm here to be the greatest long distance runner (in my age group) of all time. I know my purpose, but I just haven't taken any steps to achieve it yet. A first step might be to purchase some new running shoes.
