Even though my brother makes a living selling outdoor advertising, I'm personally not a big fan of billboards. But I took a picture of this one because I like the way it shadows in the snow and is framed by the winter-blue sky.
I also like its message because it's got teaching potential as a discussion starter or writing prompt to use with students, faculty and staff, maybe even parents!
It made me wonder:
What does it mean to plant smart?
And what do we want to yield more of?
Reading ... Math ... Writing ... History ... Geography?
Manners ... Social skills ... Empathy ... Respect?
Joy ... Cheerfulness ... Gratitude?
As we begin another year and resume our roles as teachers, mentors, coaches and guides at school and in the workplace, my question is this:
What will we plant today to maximize our yield for tomorrow?
