Hey There.

 The strategies that teachers use in the classroom are valuable outside the classroom. You know this. It's time everyone had access to the things teachers know. Now you do. Welcome!

Is Now a Good Time?

Is Now a Good Time?

It is such a polite question. Recognizing the precious resource that time is and not wanting to squander someone else's. It an honoring question. I need some of your time but I don't want to take it when the cost is too high for you. Now may not be a good time. 

I need to ask myself this more. 

I glance at my phone : Is now a good time?

I need to bring some correction to a child who's just bounded in the door ready to spill the, and I quote, "Best.News.Ever.": Is now a good time? 

We need to talk about it but he is so sleepy.: Is now a good time?

I want to return that text/email but my emotional response to the news is still fresh.: Is now a good time? 

If I'm seriously wondering if right now is a good time, it's likely not.  

It's not a good time. So when? That's the next question. Make a plan for when to circle back. Pay yourself and your loved ones the same kindness  you'd offer an acquaintance.        

Thanks for reading.

Always,

Amie
