Sarah's Notes

We all know what they say about the best laid plans: even the most beautifully designed ones can go awry. When they do, it's not unusual to get frustrated. We might see a lesson as a failure or get anxious about falling behind; we may even displace our angst and project it onto what our students did or didn't do. As our school year falls into more predictable routines, it's important to remember how unpredictable this work actually is. This week, I'm sharing a video with a time management tip — a friendly reminder that there are no shortcuts to paying attention to our students.
