You’ve earned this brief time away and we’ve been wondering how you plan to spend it. In true Tch fashion, we asked our community of educators to find out.
Notes from the Tch Laureates

It's almost here! Winter break and the end of 2016 can't seem to come fast enough. How will you spend your well-deserved break? Driving to see family or jumping on a plane for some much needed R&R in a tropical location? Staying home to catch up on your favorite television series or finally reading those magazines stacked on your nightstand? Spending quality time with friends and family you love? Or… sleeping?

However you spend your break, I hope you'll find time to reflect on 2016 and all that we've accomplished as educators. I'll spend some of my break thinking about my practice and how I can improve in 2017. I may check out what Brian Sztabnik says about maximizing our potential in less time or these Learning Resources that Won't Feel Like Work from Sarah Brown Wessling. And don’t forget to have a little fun with Tch by adding your voice to our #TchItReal campaign. Whatever you do, enjoy your time off and know that you are appreciated!
