Here are some recent snippets from my weekly review. Each week I look back and record from what I've been thinking, reading, and experiencing in the classroom and in life. Think, Learn, Share, Repeat.
- Prestige - To retain qualified teachers and entice people to enter the profession, society needs to send the message that teachers deserve increased compensation and status. To attract and retain top talent in the teaching profession, society must prioritize investing in education and elevating the status of teachers. When we value and respect our educators, we create a system in which they can thrive, and in turn, our students can thrive as well.
- Quote - “When you see a good person, think of becoming like her/him. When you see someone not so good, reflect on your own weak points.” - Confucious
- Self-Help Writing - Proprioceptive writing is a method of connecting physical sensations with thoughts through writing. Proprioceptive writing can help individuals to identify and clarify their thoughts and feelings, providing a sense of clarity and understanding. It can also be a tool for managing emotions, reducing stress, and promoting overall well-being. By fostering a deeper connection between the mind and body, proprioceptive writing can enhance self-awareness and promote personal growth.
- Control - The end of the school year is always a time of reflection. Teachers may never fully comprehend the impact they have on their students. The end of the school year is always a time of reflection. Teachers may never fully comprehend the impact they have on their students, but their dedication and hard work can leave a lasting impression that shapes their students' lives for years to come. As the school year comes to a close, it's important to take a moment to appreciate the tireless efforts of our educators and the profound impact they have on our communities. It makes more sense to focus on what we can control and hope for the best outcomes.
- Motivation - Praising mistakes can help increase student motivation. When students are praised for their effort and improvement rather than just their achievements, they are more likely to persevere and take risks. By focusing on the process rather than just the outcome, students can develop a growth mindset that allows them to embrace challenges and learn from their mistakes. This can lead to greater confidence.
- Question - What are three pieces of advice you would give your younger self? Mine are - 1. Your career is not who you are. 2. Always make time to exercise. 3. You can control your actions and reactions. That's about it. Spend time making sure both are serving you well.
