Hello PRM Community,
Many of you may not know this, but I come from a family of educators. I have such gratitude for the experiences that the educators in my life have provided me and for the multitude of educational environments that I have gotten to experience here in the United States and in places like Germany, Austria and Spain. It is because of this background and my own personal training that I truly believe PRM is one of the most unique and special learning communities! As one of few neighborhood Montessori schools, we are pioneering a program that is unlike most across the country. As a neighborhood school, the diversity of our school community mirrors that of the greater community – and what an awesome experience that provides our children as we help to prepare them to be contributing citizens.
The magnitude of the work that we do in this unique school community requires a special kind of resiliency that must be grounded in our “why”. As we prepare for upcoming testing and for the last quarter of the school year, it is so important that we think about how we can support one another and the children to persevere with intensity and focus until the very end. One key component of resiliency is to stay grounded in your “why” – part of our collective “why” is our vision and mission, the goals we have for the school year as identified by our One Plan and our goals for the students to show growth. But…more importantly, is the “why” that drives the passion that we have for the children of PRM. As we advocate for a quality neighborhood Montessori program for each and every child- we have to support one another in staying grounded in our “why”. Please take a moment to watch this short clip as a reminder of the importance of remembering our “why” when staying resilient.
