It is our last week of school. So much is happening; last minute assessing, class celebrations, school wide special days, and looking forward to sleeping in!
My wish is that teachers will:
Celebrate. Celebrate how much the students have learned! Celebrate how much more independent students have become. Celebrate how much teachers have grown over the school year.
Reflect, really reflect. I hope teachers will reflect on what went well (and maybe not so well) this year. Reflect on relationships that they have built with students and families. Reflect on what they might want to change for next year.
Recharge. Recharge themselves physically. Recharge themselves by doing fun stuff. Recharge professionally by reading an educational article, book or even just a Tweet.
