As another school year draws to a close, take a look back to see how far you've come, what you've accomplished, and what you've learned along the way. As teachers, we have the unique opportunity to reflect on the past school year and start fresh in the fall. We can keep what has worked, toss what hasn't worked and implement new strategies. We can use our reflections to help us plan where we want to go next year. Recording them in a journal creates memories to have for years to come.
