Well… since I am not the phys. ed. teacher, it is pretty clear that the flexibility I am talking about here does not involve stretching! Flexibility is the ability to change your schedule in order to help or accommodate others.

One example of flexibility from my life involves my student teaching. Last year in East Lansing I had a tough time remembering to do the lunch count and often forgot! One day, I completely forgot and the kids in my class were going to have to eat sandwiches for lunch (which they thought would be horrible… I like sandwiches, what’s the problem with them?). So, I decided to be flexible and buy pizza for the entire class. We ended up having a great mini-pizza party and the kids didn’t have to eat the horrible sandwiches.

Have you ever changed your schedule or helped someone even when you were busy? How did it make you feel? What did the other person say to you afterwards? Most importantly… do you like sandwiches?

    This week my family was talking about things we were going to do this month. My mom said that our Grandma and Aunt might have a Candle Party. Then a couple nights ago my mom said they won’t have one because my Grandpa has cancer. Then my mom said that my Grandma was going to spend time with him because he had cancer. So we had to be flexibil to my Grandma and Aunt to have a Candle Party later.

  26. Chris A says:

    One time that I was flexible was actually last week. I had a Lacrosse game they told me the game was from 12:00-1:00. So we orderd tickets to the WMU game. Then the Lacrosse manager called back and said the Lacrosse game was from 1:00-2:00. I had to be in the press box at the WMU by 2:00. So I had to miss the second half of my Lacrosse game. In the end it worked out for the better me and my dad had agreat time in the press box. So that is one way I was flexable
