Slice of Life Challenge
Please join the challenge over at Two Writing Teachers!
I didn’t know how important my fellow teachers would be for my professional growth, for my students, for my sanity.
I didn’t know that writing and reading with my students is a must and it must occur everyday.
I didn't know that being a reader and being a writer makes me a better teacher.
I didn’t know that technology would change the classroom, school, world as much as it has.
I didn’t know how to grow as a teacher and how important that is…to continue to grow and learn.
I didn’t know that after 19 years, I still learn. No year is the same.
I didn't know that sometimes I have to throw out the plans and punt...and those are often the best days.
I didn’t know that following the class conversation...that teachable moment...is more important than following the plans.
I didn’t know how to be organized, yet flexible enough to meet the needs of my students.
I didn't know how wise my students really are...if I listen, really listen to them...they tell me what they need.
I didn’t know, truly know, how important my job is…years in the classroom has shown me some of my impact.
