I am working on being a better blogger and so I have accepted @teachthought challenge. The challenge is to do a 30 day reflective blog, you can find the detail here.
Day 1 My goals for the year:
1. Use a math workshop model in my classroom. I read Minds on Mathematics by Wendy Ward Hoffer this summer and knew I needed to try this. I am hoping my students can become problem solvers and critical thinkers instead of just redoing what I do in examples.
2. We started school last week and the energy was great. I want to help keep that energy up and positive. What are your tips and tricks for keeping teachers upbeat?
3. Be a leader who is willing to listen more than talk. I find myself always being the first to share at team leader meetings and during PLC’s. I can learn more by listening first and then sharing my ideas if necessary.
