The countdown is on...these are the final moments...
What do you want to accomplish this year? What are your priorities? What fears/worries do you have?
As you begin the school year, I want to share some encouragement and advice. It's not that I have all the answers, or that I never make a mistake. Rather, I have been (and will continue to be) there.
So, a few "words of wisdom" for today:
Set HIGH expectations for yourself. Push yourself. Stretch yourself. Don't be afraid to try new things, and to fail in the attempt. Each day, each class period, you have the opportunity to grow, to experiment, to improve.
Your students will understand if something doesn't go well. Let yourself be understanding as well. You will make mistakes. You will have lessons that flop. It is not the end. It is the beginning.
We have an incredible job--we can try and try and try, and we can begin again as often as we want.
Don't be satisfied. Strive.
