I find myself reflecting on a quote I saw on Instagram last night.
No matter how many years we have been teaching, we should feel like a ROOKIE every year by trying something new and not being afraid to fail. --Heidi Pauer, educator
Dreaming about the classroom I want to create.
Sipping a chai tea.
Pinteresting--finding tools and ideas that would be awesome in my dream classroom.
Pulling that all together...
I often feel like I am trying something new that I saw on IG, FB, or a blog. I love to incorporate someone's great idea or teacher trick. These have helped my classroom be fun and exciting for me (and hopefully the students).
And I often wonder--when will it be good enough? Will my classroom, my instruction ever meet my expectations?
That used to stress me out, but not any more. Because each change, each idea is adding to the instruction and hopefully the success of the students who pass through my classroom.
So--off to incorporate the something new for next week!
