"Weeping trees grow flexible branches that flow with the wind, create openings and change with the seasons. Pedagogical partnerships require flow, flexibility and movement to inspire transformation in teaching and learning. The image of the weeping tree is meant to capture this and encourage us to look towards the wisdom of natural beings as we seek change in our approach to building more joyful and meaningful connections in educational spaces."
