Kids are always learning. We are always teaching something. The question then becomes: What?
I know this, of course. And so do you. But sometimes I need a reminder. This weeks’ interview with John Losey highlighted that truth for me yet again. We talked about setting up specific experiential learning “initiatives” and creating intentional learning opportunities. But as John reminds us, we miss the point of all of it if we don’t realize that even when we’re not wearing our “teaching hat”, we’re still teaching. In the van, on the court, after the meeting, hanging with our families…kids are learning something from us.
We can take that truth and turn it into incredible self-pressure, or we can be reminded of the grace of God that covers us when we fail to teach well. I’m leaning on that last part. But I’m also thankful for the reminders that even when I think it doesn’t matter…it all matters.
