I’m trying something very new and experimental in my classes this year. It’s wonderful, discouraging, overwhelming, eye-opening, frustrating and amazing all at once.
As teachers, we want the best for our children. We are visionaries, and we want to be game-changers all the time. So sometimes it can be frustrating or discouraging when we have an idea of where we want to be in our heads, but no matter what we do, we just aren’t there yet.
Today, I just want us to reflect on the steps that we are taking and enjoy the journey. Change takes time, and moving toward an incredible goal will inevitably have setbacks. Keep moving forward.
