At The SEED, we're always working to make every experience one that can contribute to our learning. Through our practices, we learn both conventions and uses of the English language, but we also develop our understanding of leadership, collective action, democracy and leveraging our power to make positive change in our community.
After our first popcorn sale, using our wonderful new popcorn machine, we had a lot of ideas for doing better in our next sale. We talked about clarifying schedules for the sale, thinking about smarter pricing, developing a way for teachers to place full class orders, and even the possibility of buying a second machine! Of course, we won't be able to do everything, and we know we will never be perfect, but it feels great to have some experience to use as educative.
