15 Things Every Teacher Should Try This Year
This is great time of year to try some new innovative things in your classroom. It could inspire you for next year as well. Don't be scared to try something new and learn with our students.
Thanks to everyone who helped in a "filming" project for ACS. I heard that our students were excellent listeners! This could be one more way that our students have a glimpse of the possibilities ahead of them. Maybe we have some movie stars in our midst???
Something for you to ponder...
What do you think about this quote, honestly? Reflect back on this year. Have you created an environment in your classroom that allows the freedom for students to ask questions? It's important for all of us to be reflective learners, so we continue to grow in our profession. This might even be a question to think about in your personal life?
