Give YOURSELF a 10! As we prepare to close out our final week before departing for our winter break, take a moment to jot down at least “ten” things that you have successfully accomplished with your students, in your classroom, here at Jenkins or simply something you want to celebrate as an educator. Don’t wait until the end, celebrate the gains that you see happening everyday within yourself, your students and your overall classroom. Know your goals, know your data and most importantly…know your kids.
