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?
