what’s worse than being trapped inside an airplane, sitting in a window seat, with not enough leg room? answer: when the plane isn’t even moving. the literal vision of this is easy to imagine, if you’re like me, you’ve been stuck on a plane that is sitting at the gate or on the runway and not moving and feeling of anxiousness just builds. for me, it was literally today 😦 metaphorically, i think you know where i’m going…but just in case, i’ll spell it out. teachers trap kids daily and is saddens me. bright kids are placed into situations where they can’t move, physically and/or intellectually, and what makes it doubly worse is that the learning isn’t going anywhere. so i guess the magic occurs when teachers find ways to allow their students to stretch their legs and move the plane.
