Moreau Heights Elementary
Be A Merchant Of Hope - What Makes You Stay?
See your wounds and pain as a symbol of strength, courage, and teachable moments. Don't' be embarrassed or ashamed of them. See your resiliency in these challenges and ask yourself, "What am I learning about myself through this?" Take time to reflect on your journey so it can only get healthier and happier.
Keep going. No matter what, keep going. There will be times in your work when it feels like nothing can go right. Accept the fact that periodically your work as a teacher or leader is going to come at you hard. Sometimes you must go through difficult time in order to appreciate the best moments in your job. Some of your most critical learning comes from your biggest mistakes and trying moments. Don't let these experiences discourage you; instead, cherish the challenges.
Our behavior data shows the greatest need is student defiance. Our lessons over the quarter will focus on skills that support student's following adult directions, even when it's hard.
Take time this week to celebrate with your class during morning meeting. Remember to review and practice what is needed, as needed, based on what your students show you.
