  • Guest Blog: The Power of Nature

    As we explore our Spirituality theme of Stewardship and Service, teachers and students have been talking about the importance of taking care of the earth, and sharing ways in which they enjoy being in and around nature. Mr. Guzman shared this story in assembly this week, and I was so moved by it I asked if he would be willing to share it as a guest blog.  As a child who grew up in the city, and often felt stifled and trapped in the heat of the summer, Mr. Guzman’s words really resonated with me.

    I am a part of nature. For each of us humans there is no denying that. We are connected to its many complex structures in the most basic yet essential ways: it is a necessity that we are able to breathe oxygen and it is essential that we consume water. It is ideal that we receive Vitamin D through sunlight and yet unlike any other living organism in nature, humans seek out ways to separate ourselves from nature, most typically under the guise of progress or distancing ourselves from baser instincts: we are humans not beasts. However as we invent, innovate, create and orchestrate, humans have a tendency to overlook nature, in spite of the necessities I just mentioned. Perhaps I failed to mention one more necessity: immersing oneself in nature and the environment.

  • Guest Blog: Why Teachers Give to the Annual Fund

    Teachers give to the Annual Fund at All Saints because they recognize that they are as much a part of the community of All Saints Episcopal Day School as are parents and students.  Giving to the Annual Fund is a way for teachers to celebrate the special place that is All Saints.  As a group they recognize that the school mission sets the school apart from other schools and they feel fortunate to be in a place that supports teachers to not only develop their curriculum, but also takes the time to develop their teaching craft  through professional development opportunities.  By giving to the Annual Fund teachers celebrate and show support for the students with whom they are fortunate to work.  Students at All Saints are not just numbers on a roster, but are people who feel like family.

    Often times when listening to the media, teachers are reported as burned out and “going through the motions” of teaching.  At All Saints this couldn’t be further from the truth!  Teachers are a celebrated part of the school culture, recognized as experts in their field, encouraged to develop the curriculum and to use their creativity to solve problems.  Teachers collaborate with their colleagues and know that their voice is being heard by administration.  By giving to the Annual Fund teachers acknowledge that they are part of this wonderful community and demonstrate their desire for it to thrive.
