Everyone would agree that a skilled educator is one who is successful at balancing many things at once. The needs of the students, the ability to multi-task, and the foresight to plan are just a few of the ways in which Posnack teachers balance the demands of the profession on a daily basis. Today, however, Posnack Faculty and Staff took the art of balancing to a new level.
As a kick-off to the 2013-2014 school year, the Posnack family headed to the Tigertail Lake Recreational Center for a day filled with Team Building exercises, rope climbing, canoeing, and even high wire balancing! Sure it was hot – but the heat and humidity didn’t stop the teams from honing their skills in listening, perseverance, and planning together – all-important skills that translate to success in the classroom. Many of the games and exercises will be used as “ice-breakers” when the students return to school next week, but the lessons learned and the ensuing collegiality will continue well beyond the start of school.
And what about the image of our CFO balancing up high with grace and ease? Well, that sight will remain as an inspiration to us all that there’s nothing we can’t do with a little bit of effort and cheering from our teammates!
