I can feel it! One week until I get to breathe, relax, and kick my feet up. And I can’t wait. However, as much as I wish I could sit still, the reality is my summers are often spent gearing up for the next school year. Summer is a time for me to recharge, but also a time to consider how I’m going to make needed adjustments to my practice and help create a better, more workable system within my building. So for my summer learning this year, I’m facilitating a book study using the text, Hacking Education: 10 Quick Fixes for Every School. I hope some of you will consider joining me as we rethink our processes, our practices for instructional growth, and our current school climate, and encourage ourselves to become teacher leaders advocating for change.
As we wind down and cross this year’s finish line, may we all honor the growth we’ve made — and look forward to the opportunities that await.
