Enjoying a nice morning at my mom’s bench at Community Park... approves of the ’ donut.

Each kid walking down the hall deserves eye contact & a simple hello. This is an easy way to model 'adulting' for kids.

I’m always so confused when people assume that teaching the whole child and having high standards for academic achievement are mutually exclusive ideals. There are probably no two expectations in education that are more interdependent.

“After being asked to learn for 8 hours a day, how can we expect a child to be able to go home and continue pushing their brains. We have to give them time to play and be children.” -Todd Nesloney

The attitudes of the adults in a school in time become the attitudes of the students. Never forget that your is contagious.

Don't ever be afraid to admit you're wrong; it's the ability to admit you're wrong that shows true strength & confidence.

Great point. I do believe it's still possible even if using common assessments within a department. The question is... how are the common assessments being used.

To those who say, "If I don't grade it they won't do it" please don't lament the fact that students aren't more self-directed. You can either develop self-directed learners OR dangle points each time they need to do something; can't have it both ways.

Teachers who put first don't just have students for one year; they have students who view them as 'their' teacher for life.

Allowing a student to retake an assessment for full credit says to the student that you believe in them & their ability to do better; it says your learning is my goal.

You weren’t born disciplined or lazy, leader or follower, coward or courageous. Like most things in this world you choose who you will be daily through your thoughts, your words, and your habits. Fair or unfair we are all the sum of the choices we make.

I'm comfortable giving the student who needed 4 attempts to master a skill the same grade as the student who only needed 1 attempt. 'If' a student learns is more important to me than 'when.'

When speaking to people, do your best to use their name. People love hearing their name. Plus, 'hey you' just doesn't have the same effect.

Some kids carry around with them the burden of a bad reputation. Be the teacher who gives them a fresh start. Be the teacher who sees in them, the potential that their parents see. YOU can be the teacher that helps them “turn the corner.”

When we do interviews, we intentionally ask questions about family & outside interests. Our goal is to get to know our candidates and ensure they know we care about their personal side as much as their professional.

One of the many things wrong with traditional grading.

Additionally, redos/retakes may look different and may only include area(s) that haven’t yet been mastered. This of course is decided by the teacher based on their professional judgement.
