I linked up with Farley from Oh’ Boy 4th Grade for her monthly Currently Linky! I love her idea of RAK. 🙂

This week has been a mentally exhausting one for me. We had a rough week on my cheerleading squad and I’m struggling with putting a group of high school teenagers back together as a bonded team. I think it will be a slow journey, but I’m hoping for the best. Does anyone have any awesome team-building activities/ideas that they’ve picked up over the years? I have gone through all the basic ones and am looking for some creative/fresh ideas. 🙂
We did one today and I actually saw some smiles and laughter from the girls. Let me just say if I have learned one thing from being a coach who is also an elementary teacher…high school teachers must possess a magical gift that I have yet to discover! Don’t get me wrong, it has it’s own joys that go with it. I have learned valuable lessons on patience, empathy, and tolerance from coaching high school students -lessons that are different from the lessons I learn from my six year olds. I think that is one of the wonderful things about teaching. We can all have the same beliefs, goals, and expectations for students, but it is a teacher’s unique personality that makes him or her perfect for the grade level and group of students they teach. 🙂
Thank you so much for being such wonderful followers! I hope everyone has a great weekend!
