When facilitating thinking routines like a C-S-I, I am always amazed at the depth of some students' thinking. Today I was amazed at one of of my student's response:
When I think of leadership, I think of the color green. I think of the color green because green is a color that is a mix of two colors: blue and yellow. I think of a leader as being yellow, always bright and sunny and positive. This leader comes across someone that is sad or "blue" and he or she helps them feel better. The resulting color of the "mix" is green.
Leadership isn't a solo endeavor. It really is about taking care of others, as well as, taking care of ourselves! Wow.
