Quote of the Week
Summer provides us with a time for reflection. While the best teachers do this all year long, the summer affords us a greater span of time than our morning shower. What worked. What didn't. What we just need to change because it is stale.
More than reflection though, it can be a time of great growth like the grass around us. This growth does not just need to be education related, although I hope some of it surrounds your field (What a great opportunity the district is giving us for self-selected summer learning and paying us on top of it!). I would also encourage you to follow a passion. Set a closed goal...one you set and expect to achieve in a designated amount of time. Feel what it is like to be a learner especially when it surrounds your passion. It is so very important that in a field centered on learning that you are still a learner.
You know how I love lists.....so my hopes and wishes for you this summer are:
(1) Take time to breathe. (2) Slow down your pace. and (3) Try something new.
