One of the perks of being a teacher is the start of the school year. No matter what happened the previous year, you get to start fresh. You can redo your room, change your lessons and you get a whole new group of students.
Reinvention is a wonderful tool of our profession. As we advance through our careers we will take on many forms, not all of them will be our best. However, when we realize we are not at our best, we can change and do so quickly. I have the great pleasure of being around dedicated educators who are constantly reflecting on their daily impact on students’ lives and if they are doing their best. These people taught me, no matter where I feel I am as an educator, I can always reinvent and bring my game back up.
To all the educators out there, I wish you a great start to your year!
