These may be the new buzz words, but they were always themes that our grandmothers and mothers taught us: Never give up! These are not new ideas but sometimes, we do need to be reminded of them.
The newness of the school year has worn off, and you are fast approaching the end of the first quarter. All those lofty goals you had in August--did you meet them? Don’t give up on them. Sure, you may be a little behind in where you wanted to be in your curriculum, behind in your grading, behind in replacing the bulletin boards to reflect the new season, but try not to get overwhelmed and give up! You, the educator, are the single most important change agent for your students and your schools!
You've done it: you've made it to the second half of the school year! When you think back on all your district's events and causes for celebration thus far, ask yourself: do you consistently inform your stakeholders about the great things going on in your schools, or is all the positive news kept within the school building's walls? If the latter, now might be a good time to re-evaluate your district's communication strategy.
