Growing up and even in my young adult life, there were very few people I actually knew that I looked up to. Maybe it’s from being prideful but I was never one easily impressed.
This changed since I started working where I am now, Donvale Christian College. I remember telling a friend that it’s a place with the highest concentration of people that I admire and really look up to. No workplace is perfect as its run by imperfect individuals – but wow, what difference it makes when so many rely on a Perfect God!
Before the year ends, I hope to feature all the members of my team along with a resource they have created or a teaching practice I admire them for. That leaves you with ideas to try!
Jennifer Flynn is one of the beautiful women I get to work with. She came up with a resource, a banner with Play Ideas for students because she noticed a few could use help in this during recess and lunch play. The banner includes fitness challenges, games, play spaces to explore and different lunchtime clubs our school runs. All these are fun, productive and creative, plus, they solve the problem of having too many kids in one space. Have a look!
This is just one of the things that prove how dedicated Jen is to helping her students, in and outside of the classroom. And there’s much more about Jen that I admire. Here’s a list:
I’m serious when I say I could keep going and give more examples of the lessons I have learnt from Jen’s example. I pray you too can have someone like her on your team one day. And if you already do, make sure to show your appreciation!
If you want a copy of Jen’s Play Ideas Banner, comment below or message me and I’ll happily send you the file.
