As educators, we have the ability to transform our classrooms and our schools, in order to help our students arise to the challenges posed in the 21st century. We have the ability to reflect upon the macro and micro decisions we make as educators that help nurture our students socially, emotionally, academically, and linguistically. In our rapidly changing world, we have to ask ourselves, are our school's keeping up?
As many educators enter summer break, we know we must recoup our emotional energy through travel, visiting with family, pursuing passion projects, and perhaps simply a lot of Netflix catchup! However, once some of your "emotional bucket" is replenished it is important to reflect upon your school year. What are your professional successes this year? What might you want to refine for next year? And finally, what will you do next year to foster a transformative, equitable classroom?
I am so excited to be launching this website so that I can share with you strategies, articles, and personal pondering that might help you in your own professional journey in creating a transformative classroom.
