Summer is quickly flying by and I find myself looking forward to the coming school year. I've not been great before about my reflection and thinking about my teaching in a meaningful way and this has been a goal for me to improve upon this school year. It can only help me become a stronger teacher and a better human being.
Going into this year, I've taken on a few roles that I'm ecstatic to have the opportunity to do so. I will again be part of the Scholastic Instructor magazine teacher advisory board, reviewing the magazine and testing out materials with students in the classroom. Additionally, I am repeating in my role as Microsociety coordinator next year at EAGLE Charter School. I recently signed on to be part of a group of teacher evaluating Scholastic's Teacher Resources materials, with hopes of improving their effectiveness in the classroom. Finally, I've been asked to further my role as a Class Dojo Ambassador, reaching out to teachers, families, and communities alike to discuss and share how beneficial the Class Dojo classroom can truly be. I am excited to take on each of these roles and look forward to the opportunity to work with other educators to make the daily classroom experience better for everyone.
I'd be glad to have any of you join me on this trip this school year. I can surely use the expertise and experience of those who have been at it a little longer and are able to offer some guidance. I look forward to a great year and am eager to get to know those who would like to join me on the ride.
Happy August (in a couple days...)!
