Confessions of a Bad Blogger

I have no excuse for my poor blogging other than is nuts! I am one counselor for 500 students, I have three children, a husband who is a Mayor and two dogs (one of which is chewing through a roll of toilet paper right now). In my spare time, I am the volunteers chair for the MSCA fall conference (in a few weeks), I am helping to develop and present on our new Live Binder that is going to be awesome (for conference), I re-purpose furniture for our side antique business, and I am now an Origami Owl Independent Designer (we have some cool products...Tosha Todd, Origami Owl Independent Designer)...whew!! I love all of these things but they keep me hopping!!

So, that being said, I wanted to share these cool new resources I ran across this past week. Empathy is a skill that I believe is quickly being lost in today's children.

This is a You Tube channel called Empathy Heroes. This is one of their videos. They have several.
Empathy Heroes - More than Autism

Then, there is a cool website - Start Empathy

Both are great tools to use when teaching empathy in schools.

That's all for now. Hopefully, I'll have more to share soon.

Until then,
