This month’s topic focuses on the future of the teaching profession.
We cannot look forward to the future of the profession unless we first reflect on the past.
I am proposing that you specifically look at the teaching year that you just completed
What went well? What will you never attempt again? Where do you need to improve?
A few of my good and bad things from the year:
-Falling behind on grading (I will conquer my grading next year!)
-Making more timely positive parent contacts
-Not enough one-on-one conferences with students
-Developing a positive, caring classroom with my home room class. They all genuinely loved our class and I loved them! They were such a good group.
-integrating technology into my various lessons. The kids loved doing Prezis, videos, websites, etc.
-Lots of hands-on science activities!
Now, I can look back at this year and determine in which direction I would like to go in for my future classes.
What about you? What are the good and bad things you experienced this year?
