Sunday Tradition

For many years, I've looked forward to a little Sunday tradition where I read the posting on the PostSecret blog. If you're not familiar, it's a community art project where people anonymously send secrets on a postcard. Each week, I look forward to reading the cards Frank shares.

Today, there was one that really resonated with me...

And then, at the end of the secrets, there was this message:

In response to the teacher who cannot find magic in his or her classroom:
Your role is not to be the magician. Your role is to be the believer. The magic will reveal itself (it is often locked inside your students).

I hope this reaches some of you as it has me. What a great thing to keep in mind as we head back into the classrooms next week and begin to feel increased pressure regarding the impending testing. 

Believe in magic!
