Kids are Brilliant

Kids amaze me. I was teaching a 2nd-grade yoga class, during the school year and shared with my students that I was learning how to overcome my fear of handstands with my yoga teacher.  One of the girls asked, “Why do you have a yoga teacher?  I don’t understand.  Aren’t you a yoga teacher?” Brilliant. This led to a rich discussion about how we all have teachers, and how many teachers are also students;  that we are all learning from each other.  The girl next to her said, “Yah, it’s like your Mom when she goes to work has a boss, but maybe she is a boss to someone else.”  Yes! I love how intelligent these little beings are.  They truly amaze me – constantly.  I told them that I learn from them all the time, and they thought that was pretty funny.
