Yearning for Learning: K–6
How to ignite a contagious wild fire in the minds and actions of students to create a powerful enthusiasm and energetic inner joy of learning. How to move past areas where we might feel stuck. How to open creativity, inspire brilliance, and invite the enlivening magic of true learning. How to help students choose-to accept encouraging, longterm, and liberating striving for excellence as a way of being. How to help students be courageous, observant, and ingenious in everyday moments by enjoying and receiving their own responsibility for free-flowing learning. How to be a timeless teacher, balanced builder, and cheerful educator. How to be powerful beyond measure, gently nurture, and harmoniously heal. How to honor the natural greatness in ourselves and everyone else.
