Coaching Myself Forward: End-of-Year Realities

Yesterday was one of those unexpected tough days. There were a number of upsetting, unexpected events. I've replayed the day many times over, and have utilized what I learned to reorganize the days and weeks to come in ways that I hope will be more successful.

As I noted a few days ago, the end-of-the-school year brings with it unique challenges which means we have to reschedule our days and teach differently. While I thought I had done that, I had not made enough change, change in expectations and change in planning to meet the end-of-school-year reality.

What does this mean for the days ahead?
  • It means a renewed focus on what I can do on my own and with grade-level colleagues to teach and care for the colleagues.
  • It means no new plans, but instead prepping and executing the plans in place.
