Fridayyyyyyyyyyyy!! Yea! Today’s letter from the A to Z Blogging Challenge is M. My “M” is for “Motivation.” A while back I wrote a post about student motivation, so today, I chose to write about teacher motivation. What motivates teachers??
It is L day for the A to Z Blogging Challenge! And my L stands for Letter. Dear First Year Teacher, Congrats! You are finished jumping through all those hoops the school of education demands that you pass through and you have landed a job! Those are major accomplishments that should be celebrated!!
Didactic Teaching. We all had at least one class where the teacher spouted off information, we wrote down what we thought was important and our grades were dependent how much of his or her rumblings we could regurgitate back on the test.
My A stands for attendance! Oh how teachers struggle with attendance! Not their own, but the students’ consistency to show up every day.
I love Spring Break. It signals the beginning of warm weather…well, most of the time. It also cues me to spend some time partaking in a couple of my Spring Break teaching rituals so I thought I would share them with you.
