“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

“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

“Time spent in wild places brings us into presence. It strengthens our body and quiets our mind. It distills life back to its simplest, purest state; enlivens our senses and deepens our connection to our natural world. We return to our real, true selves and begin to rediscover our own wild nature.”

Education…is a painful, continual, and difficult work to be done in kindness, by watching, by warning…by praise, but above all, by example.

-John Ruskin

The Weekend Ed. Quote this week is… a poem!!

The mind is constantly trying to figure out
what page it’s on in the story of itself.
Close the book. Burn the bookmark. End of story.
Now the dancing begins.
