Some mornings elicit a richer depth of reflection than others. This morning brought me to some rich conclusions which have ricocheted me back to my priorities which are the following:

  • deep, student-centered focus on creating a robust, effective, standards-based, engaging and empowering education program.
  • continual attention to the learning environment with regard to organization, access to learning/teaching tools, and student autonomy, mastery, and purpose
  • enriching my ability to teach math and science in ways that matter
  • continually developing my ability to communicate well in order to collaborate and develop my practice 
In the end, it is my goal to be the best teacher I can, to put my students, their families, and my colleagues first in this endeavor, and to use these skills to affect the community beyond school and at home in ways that matter. Onward.
