|This will be my personal focus next year.|
There is great satisfaction in teaching well. To work with a team of colleagues, students, families, and administrators to prepare and implement good work to elevate students learning, self-concept, happiness, and capacity is a terrific way to use your energy and focus your time.
As I think of prioritizing and targeting efforts for the 2018-2019 school year, I'm thinking about the work I will do to support students' learning paths, paths that lead to success with learning-to-learn strategies, social emotional learning, collaboration, communication, and academic standards.
What efforts and evidence will foster this work in the days ahead? The focus during the start of school includes the following:
- Social-Emotional Learning and Team Building
- The Language and Behavior of Learning
- Community Building
- Relationship Building
- Teamwork, positive routines, and norms in STEAM, math, science classes.
Information highlighted needs to be done soon.
