The year begins today…PD in action with lots of happy faces, hugs, and so much thinking that I think I need another summer break 🙂 Then our beautiful principal gives the question and 10 minutes to reflect: what hopes we have for our kids in 2015-2016? We have all been thinking all summer about plans and analyzing data, but our hopes we have for them? Wow, that is one of my favorite words like EVER. That’s something I can really get excited about…
So what do I hope?
I hope they are as ready as I am.
I hope they are brave when I am not.
I hope they push me to learn more.
I hope they listen to each other.
I hope they feel loved.
I hope they catch my enthusiasm for learning.
I hope they have fun.
I hope they laugh a lot.
I hope they are kind.
I hope they look back at this year and remember that I made them feel like a million bucks.
Honestly, I can’t say much more than this…my hopes for myself are summed up above. If I can do all of this for a student, I am doing all I need to do as an educator!
