I am so excited to share with you my guest blog post "E Is For Empathy,"that was shared on the Sassy Savvy Simple Teaching learning space and was very grateful to share a lesson that stems from my personal beliefs and principles that are deeply connected to three major themes presented in my book, Love Notes: A Guide To Developing A Compassionate Heart and Teaching Students For A Greater Purpose: character development (compassion), student empowerment, and relationships. As I plan for lessons I look for ways to incorporate these themes to provide a dynamic learning experience that extends beyond the standards. Students are the success
