“Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying.” Andy Dufresne, Shawshank Redemption

Today, I am giving you permission to LIVE A FULL LIFE. Yep, I want you- in fact, I CHALLENGE you to get out of school mode and into living.

My theory is this; if you live- fully live- outside of teaching/school/work… you will bring so much more authenticity to your teaching it will totally up the level of engagement your kids experience.

Sounds crazy doesn’t it? “Go live life outside of your profession and you’ll be more effective.”

You might be surprised at the difference my charge to you will make in student engagement. I had a huge “ah- ha” a few weeks back that knocked me on the head. Check it out in today’s video. Be sure to pay close attention to my challenge this week and by all means, leave me a comment! I want to celebrate with you.



This is a great time of year to get into life. Start by surrounding yourself with other teachers who believe living makes them better in the classroom. Click here to join the International Academy of Bee Sharp Teachers today!
