Welcome Back

Happy New Year Everyone! We hope that you enjoyed some well-deserved time with family and friends. Here's to starting off a New Year with some reflection & goals in mind (as well as some fun in the snow too!)

New Year, New Goals

Transforming Teaching

As reflective thinkers and educators, we are always wondering what we can do to slightly change our practice in response to our current group of students. The following article describes how change is hard work yet so important for our teaching practice because it helps our students.

Goal Setting

There's a lot of power in setting and reaching personalized goals. You are probably thinking of some that you made last year at this time! As your mind is on these goals, take a peek at some of the links and videos that could add to your thinking! The link below is a great article about motivation! The second link is a reflection by a teacher, who describes how to approach the New Year (easy read, great connections to having a Growth Mindset).
