Chapter 8 of Make Learning Magical is less about technique and more about our recurring theme of reflection. Tisha shares her own stories of impact, and challenges us to think from two angles - how can we have an impact on our students, and how have others in our lives had an impact on us?
I love that she mentioned this quote from The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon:
"The best legacy you could leave is not some building that is named after you or a piece of jewelry but rather a world that has been impacted and touched by your presence, your joy, and your positive actions."
As we stew on this idea of "legacy," take some time to think deeply and answer the following questions:
1) What are some ways that you celebrate students in your class, take in their ideas, and/or allow them to create their own legacy?
2) How would you like to be remembered? What is the legacy you are currently working on?
