These winter months can be especially challenging for teachers. Suddenly, weekends are not nearly enough to rejuvenate us, and the next break is too far out of reach. It’s the perfect time to reconnect with our purpose, and what is truly important: our students.
Our kids can easily get lost among the noise of professional development, evaluations, lesson plan deadlines, or grad school classes. Spend some time listening to the voices of these students, who remind us why teaching matters.
