And then this happened...
But this year, a part of me is looking forward to the year because I am determined this will be the year I stick to my promise to myself and my family that I will NOT LOSE myself to the demands of teaching. I will work smarter, not harder. I will leave school at school. I will still continue to uphold high expectations for achievement on my students and myself, but I will learn how to balance what Robert Marzano describes as the three essentials principles of sound educational pedagogy: classroom management, curriculum, and teaching strategies.
I will teach like a human.
Stay tuned for news about my first goal: In what ways can I streamline communication systems for students and their families while respecting the different levels of competency with, and access to devices, websites, apps, and other digital tools?
