Take a moment to think about the 2015-16 school year. For me it feels like a decade ago. I have strong memories of some students, emotions, and images — polaroids and pieces of a year in the life of a teacher. But the details of assignments and instruction fade over time. In contrast, I can remember this year quite clearly — the choices I made, where I struggled, where students needed more support. And that's why, even as my last stores of energy seep out of me like a tapped maple tree, I'm going to put in the effort to reflect on this year, record the triumphs, and plan strategically to face the tribulations more effectively next year.

This week check out a video of how I work with my students to bring them into the process of continuously improving our class. Although you might be tempted to begin the work of getting better right now, remember to take time to focus on your own well being by reading Tch Laureate Crystal Morey's takeaways from her #TchWellness series. And be sure to check out these five reflective end-of-year activities to engage in with your students as you bring 2016-17 to a close.
