Edubabble 6

State of school, capital of logical, relocatable and local
Global connector, controller of my thought, I think

Wrought with wet, weathered experience
In the mirror I practice, with a wink
In the mirror I ask much of this

Wisdom, here we go, edubabble back again
No hate... here to contemplate and complicate

Relate the proportionate, never complacent
Relentless attack on the reference without difference

Break out of brick and mortar, 4 walls not for me
Prepared for the revolution, the revolutionary
Throw out the dictionary, bring in the thesaurus
No chorus, none needed, please forgive me

August to June reminds me, students will be back soon
Day after day of relationships, hellos and goodbyes
Burned or burnt out, not me, always starts with a slap high five
We do this together, we live together hours added up 6.5

Our kids, seated next to them, checking the task
I ask, student's face, tells me all their experiences
Keys to open awareness, sense when they are relaxed
That is when that relationship voice comes back

Not hard, just connect with them, know that you
You are champion, undefeated, penetrate their defense
This is not something you talk about, but something you do
Getting dressed in the morning is my analogy

You do it because you know you must
Can't show up to work naked nor get on the bus
Brush your teeth to keep your mouth healthy
Do we still need to talk about importance of relationships
Or do we need to talk about what you do
How you cultivate, strategize, not repeat the room, needing strategy, ways to connect, to cultivate, like I meet my new registrations in the office, hello how are you, what is your name, can I show you something, are you scared, where are you from, Mom/Dad have any questions, that is the start of my relationship conversations.

The explanation of the struggle, battle, retaliation
Be the one, be the substantial, the potential
As educator, mentor, coach, corner individual

What they need is the sun, not the clouds
Push away the doubt, live in their ecstasy

Without ambiguity, it is tricky, you and me
We been trusted to the next generation
No regeneration, limited space, to make a splash
Make sure you influence has a last

I hear relationship this, relationship that
Without nothing, state it for what reason
Implied should be, get that out your vocabulary
You only explain your map when you don't know where you are going
Like stating over and over about a snow day
When it is already snowing

We know... stating it again does not make it true
Those that knew, never had to tell you what to do
Consistency does not talk about rapport
Worst idea ever is to tell yourself it is all about you

Relationships, you feel it or you don't
The best I know, don't worry about their tribe
Vibe is evident in how they hold their head up high
Without hesitation, they know they got communication
Relationships are evident the second I talk to the student
Relationships are not defined by stating relationships are important

Determined by whether you know in that first 5 minutes of conflict
If your student is with you or not, what do you do next
This you can not learn from echo chambers or text
