Holy. Cow. School has started in full force! I absolutely love having kids back in the building. It feels alive again, kids bring an energy that can’t be matched. If you are a teacher, you know that there is an enormous amount of work that goes into starting a year. It’s a good thing that the kids bring energy, because mine is depleted! I blame it on the constant stream of school related dreams that happen at the beginning of the school year. It’s like I never leave that place! I hope that those of you who are beginning a new year are off to a great start.
I get a lot of questions about Anastasis Academy. People usually start off with jaws dropped and some disbelief in their eyes, “wait a minute, YOU started a school?” After some convincing that this AMAZINGNESS really does exist, the litany of questions begin. How did you do it? Where did the money come from? What is different about your school? In less than 6 months you started the school, seriously? Recently @michellek107 and I shared the story of Anastasis Academy with @bennettscience on a brand new show called Chalkstar to Rockstar. Check out this great new show here!
