This school year was different than most. Never have we ended in-person learning in March due to a pandemic. More than likely, you’ve experienced a combination of frustration, joy, sadness, early mornings, late nights, confusion, resiliency, uncertainty, ups and downs...
There were lessons, there were pivotal moments and there was simply just never enough time. This school year will never happen again - your students are different now and so are you. Take some time to capture the lessons, so that you can create an even better school year to come.
Take a moment to reflect on your school year. Answer some or all of these questions over summer break:
BENEFITS OF REFLECTION:
1. Reflection exposes the good and provides an opportunity to celebrate all that you’ve done right. Without reflection, it’s easy to forget these things, and focus instead on our challenges.
2. Reflection helps you learn from your mistakes. If we don’t reflect on our mistakes, we are doomed to repeat them.
3. Reflection sparks new ideas.
