Nicely done, Mrs. McGovern; love the look of your blog. I look forward to following your blogging journey over the course of the 18/19 school year. Can’t wait to read the post on your new classroom space. :)

Employee turnover is often a result of lack of acknowledgment, appreciation, supportive affirmation & room for professional growth. If you're interested in retaining your best employees, make sure they have room to develop & know how valued they are.

Questions to ask before leading professional development: Is this a lecture on the evils of lecture? Is this talk on differentiation going to be differentiated? Is the form of presentation the kind of pedagogical practice I should use in my class?

Grades are rarely successful at teaching students about responsibility, time management & organization (many adults still struggle). Instead, an overemphasis on grades creates a culture of compliance. In reality, grades should be about an evidenced demonstration of learning.

Kids take discipline better from teachers they respect and know care about them. In fact, they are less likely to get in trouble in the first place if they don't want to disappoint you.

Asking, 'Everybody got that?" is one of the most common verbal habits of the teacher. We should just realize that the answer is almost never correct. More here:

Love this challenge that one of our assistant principals () has set for himself for the 18/19 school year: 'I will make at least one positive call home per day for the entire school year.'

At our new teacher day, we asked all our teachers to write a letter to their future self sharing their ‘why;’ focusing on why they got into & what ignites their passion. They then sealed it in an envelope. We are saving the letter for a future rough day.

We tend to always be on the lookout for the ‘new’ & innovative idea/approach. (Not a bad thing) However, we must ensure we give our existing ideas/approaches time to mature & develop. Sometimes they need to age & go through a few iterations to reach full effectiveness.

Tonight was my 7th Open House! Instead of going over my syllabus (like years passed), I asked parents in each period to write their child a message of encouragement. I'll hand these to each student when they need to see it most 💚 (ps now I'm crying, these notes are everything)

If we each made one positive comment to another person today, just think how uplifting & transformational that could be... What if we did this every day? Consider yourself challenged. :)

Leaders build capacity in their respective organizations by allowing, encouraging, and positioning others to make decisions on their own. Capacity is never built through micromanaging.

The depth, quality & strength of relationships that exist among the adults in a school have an enormous impact on the overall success of the school. Great schools are made up of adults who genuinely care about each other & always celebrate the success of each team member.

Whatever your situation, find a way to be thankful in it, to learn from it, and allow it inform the rest of your life. For the most part, we are the sum total of our decisions. And, are in control of our decisions. Therefore, we are in control of who we become.

It's so important to remember that being a kid can be stressful. The start of school presents a lot of uncertainty & unknown for our students. Whether it be finding someone to eat lunch with, hoping your teacher likes you, or what clothes to wear, kids have a lot on their minds.
