23 December 2020
TIE sends its very best wishes for a restorative holiday season and an energized start to the new year!
 
2020 has certainly demanded great flexibility and compromise from everyone. Disruption and change have challenged us deeply but these forces have also served as empowering catalysts, prompting necessary shifts in our paradigms and processes. 
 
We are thankful for each and every one of you, for the critical role you play in the education and wellbeing of the children in your schools. We are grateful for the dedication, perseverance, and resilience you have shown, sometimes at great personal cost.
 
May we all approach the coming year with a spirit of innovation, clarity, and renewed commitment to our tasks as educators in the learning process.  
 
THANK YOU!
 
Brittany Betts, TIE CEO

Education often is steeped in compliance as a result of control. How nourishing the experience can be, when instead of control, context is the driver. In October two students asked if I might be willing to sponsor a club called, "Green Oceans." The name was intriguing, as were the stickers already affixed to the computers of various sixth graders... more

On December 3, my daughter and I stood at the window of our house in Zagreb, Croatia watching the first flakes of the first snow since we stopped keeping track of time in the pandemic and resorted to the ancient rituals of watching seasons pass and sunrise changes. I put my arm around her and said,"Hey, on a day like this, we'd probably be calling a snow day." When I told her that it was one of the few times of the school year when a feeling of pure euphoria and joy overwhelmed us, she looked up and said, "I could use some of that now".... more
