In order to assist in the shaping and problem solving procedure, we need to go back to our roots.
- Why did you get into teaching?
- What makes you excited about your day?
- What is going well?
- What do you hope to get out of your teaching career?
Then continue the soul-searching…. either same day or afterwards
- what is frustrating about your job?
- what do you want to do better?
- why don’t you love going to work every day?
- what are you feeling right now?
With both of those in mind, we will begin to plan for great changes.
Take your list of concerns and frustrations, and prioritize.
- can I fix this on my own?
- do I need to get my administration or supervisor involved?
- do I need parent participation?
- the components that are needed to make these things happen.
Throughout the next few weeks, I will be providing tips and tricks to assist in these concerns, but first you must brainstorm and begin to problem solve the issues, and stakeholders.
