Let's begin our journey.
At the beginning of the year, my students and I created a display of Six-Word Selfies. At that time, I shared my motto:
Number One was capitalized on purpose. Learning is king in my classroom. Everything else - - - every instructional decision, every managerial strategy, every daily move - - - hinges on one thing: learning. I think about it all the time:
- How can I teach that more effectively?
- Who didn't get it?
- How can I help them understand?
- How can I help them see the way my own brain processes it?
As you become a teacher, you will begin to ask yourself these questions and many more.
Welcome to the most glorious profession of all: teaching!
