The adults facilitate but don’t drive anything for the students. "The hard work [the students] do here is learning how to become agents of their own lives and how to make things happen, whether it’s something academic, or organizing a fundraiser, or another event."
The Fairhaven School, which opened its doors in 1998, has no tests or grades, and no assigned homework. Its goal is to help students develop two core traits: agency and autonomy.

Teachers that make it look like magic probably have great habits says @coolcatteacher @Edutopia http://ow.ly/QeT4H #edchat #pln #ntchat
As an educator, you are what you do, so establish a good workflow, make assessment a routine, and develop personal habits to sustain your excellence.

"When schools tell children to sit still and be quiet, you've almost wounded them. They want to be wiggling and fidgeting and moving."
Some educators are finding that standing desks are a simple way help fidgety kids settle down and get to work.
