A Climate of CAREacter

Another happy guidance moment: One of the cutest little first graders, this teeny tiny boy, said in his teeny tiny voice in response to my inquiry, 
What does a counselor do?:  Makes people happy.

Today I'm simply sharing a link to one of the most powerful pieces that I have read in a very long time. Interestingly enough, I passed the first two times it crossed my path because I didn't really care for the title. 
A title has to grab me - this post is entitled 
- and I assumed that it might be another expose bashing public schools. 
Boy was I wrong! 
Instead, it makes a compelling argument for creating 
a climate of caring and a culture of character.
So get some tissue and prepare to fall in love with Mrs. Miner, then come back to The Corner to share your reflections.


  1. Oh the tears!!!! Thank you for sharing!

  2. I'm so glad you shared that link. It was amazing!
    And yes, I got a bit choked up;)
