Finally, this morning, a positive routine came to me which includes the following:
Summer: Focus on professional research, reading, online study and writing related to main areas of professional growth and interest: math education, social/emotional learning (SEL), STEAM, and cultural proficiency. Summer study at MTA Summer Conference.
School Year 2017-2018
- Morning reading reflection
- Weekend reading/reflection
- School Time: Hands-on learning/teaching with students and colleagues
- Professional Connections: In-school teams, out-of-school online share via chats/reading, out-of-school committee work via MTA/DESE
This is a reasonable routine that focuses attention/direction on the areas I've identified for deeper learning and practice development. Onward.
