It is challenging to teach well.
Teachers navigate multiple systems in order to deliver students their best efforts, work, coaching, and care.
In the best possible scenario, communities support systems; systems support teachers, and teachers support families and students so they can do their work well and learn.
As you know from my posts, I support a servant leadership model where students hold center stage in the teaching/learning community.
It's time to take a break; to let the year's gratitude, lessons, and learning sink in, and to rest up for more growth and teaching well in the year to come. Onward.
