Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 10

“According to Purkey and Novak (2016), an invitational stance begins with teachers’ beliefs about students–that “people are able, valuable and responsible and should be treated accordingly” (p. 11). Another key belief would be that “people possess relatively boundless potential in all areas of worthwhile human endeavor” (p. 11). Inviting teachers communicate that they care about their students in every interaction with them. They demonstrate optimism when interacting with students, and they show respect to them while creating an atmosphere of trust in the classroom.

Purkey and Novak (2016) identified the 5 Ps of Invitational Education and used a starfish as a metaphor. Inviting educators (people) can focus on being invitational in the areas of places, policies, programs, and processes.” ~Jenny Edwards

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 3, 2020

“A Student is the most important person ever in this school…in person, on the telephone, or by mail.
A Student is not dependent on us…we are dependent on the Student.
A Student is not an interruption of our work..the Student’s the purpose of it. We are not doing a favor by serving the Student…the Student is doing us a favor by giving us the opportunity to do so.
A Student is a person who brings us his or her desire to learn. It is our job to handle each Student in a manner which is beneficial to the Student and ourselves.”
~ William Purkey, Inviting School Success

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ August 31

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.

~ Henry David Thoreau

Not all impressions are accurate (kinda applies to the engaged classroom through the eyes of outsiders).
