Common vision is crucial to success. Our school needs to be a learning environment that is built on support and respect. Every person crucial to the functioning, a building block required to make our school a powerful place.
When I close my eyes and imagine what it could be like...I see a school where students are learning, positive, respectful, engaged. Students are accountable for their behavior and their education. They see themselves as a crucial part of the puzzle, as learners. Teachers see themselves as builders of the structures that allow students to grow and bloom into the people they are destined to be.
At the end of our day (year) I know I did not love enough, definitely didn't laugh enough, but want to think that after all, I made a difference...
You look young in your picture, so it's hard to tell which side of the fence you fall on; be it student or teacher I really can't tell.ReplyDelete
On the other hand, I am older than dirt. School was many moons ago for me. :)
Good luck with finishing out the school year with a major bang!
I think just the fact that you hold a vision of such a positive school environment makes a difference!ReplyDelete
Have fun with the rest of a-z.
I am sure you made a difference and will be remembered fondly by your pupils!ReplyDelete
