I think it is important to give back to my friends, family, and community. Last year for my health class a friend and I decided that we would do random acts of kindness. It was incredible to be able to have the opportunity to put a smile on people’s faces. Here is the video we made:
I also decided I would have my camp group pay it forward and so we made little bags with chocolate inside to hand out to people. The children were excited to write messages on the bags and hand them out. For the most part people were receptive to the acts of kindness.
I believe it is important as a teacher to instil in students the desire to do something good for someone else or a classmate. Being nice and reaching out to people puts a smile on their face and yours. Giving back is contagious!
What have you done to pay it forward?
