My assistant has been hard at work getting some of my prep work done before heading back to school in the fall.⠀ ---------⠀ True story, I threw everything that was missing pieces into one bin during the school year. I'm spending this summer making missing pieces and getting everything ready for the next school year. Who says teachers have the summer off?
Anyone else? #sorrynotsorry
I made a DIY room divider for under $30 and shared about it on the blog. Check it out >> http://bit.ly/YAKdiyroomdivider
Don't be afraid of being a beginner. We were all beginners at one point.⠀ --------⠀ I remember my first year of teaching and the defeat I felt often. I felt like there were so many things I needed to do and there was not enough time to learn #allthethings ⠀ --------⠀ Now I'm getting ready to enter year 9 of teaching and my tool belt of interventions is growing and I am feeling more confident as a teacher. Yes, there are still days and situations that make me feel like I'm a beginner, but I have enough tools and resources in my toolbelt that I feel confident enough to find solutions to problem behaviors and other things I encounter in my classroom.⠀ --------⠀ So first year (or second, or third, or anyone who's starting out in a new classroom or district) teachers, don't be afraid of being a beginner. You're just starting to load up your toolbelt.
Who doesn’t want to count donuts? 🍩 This is a favorite classroom task!
Let’s be for real. The road to success is riddled with failed plans and mistakes.⠀ ⠀ Not every intervention is going to work for every student. It’s important that we see our missteps as a hiccup in the plan and make adjustments to move forward.
