#SOL21: Gratitude

Thank you, teachers.

Thank you for your passion.

Thank you for your curiosity.

Thank you for your joy.

Thank you for your willingness to stretch and grow.

This quote is my current favorite. So many folks think it. It’s officially in the world.

All readers deserve instruction from a skilled teacher but this book is specific based on the needs of emergent readers. They need MORE connections and practices across the day and fewer 10 or 15 minutes of isolated, segmented drudgery. Teachers uplifting JOY as they work to provide the best learning environments possible. That’s the key to success,

Thank you, Carolyn and Susan! And Stenhouse.

“intentional” . . . current favorite word!

What are you thanking teachers for as they prepare to enter the third year of schooling disrupted with stress over COVID surges? What are your reading professionally? Where do you find your JOY?

  1. Thanks for the dose of gratitude. We are starting tomorrow. I enter with trepidation and confidence. I’m worried but once the kids get here, I know I’ll be ready.

    1. .Margaret,
      Wise word choice: trepidation and confidence
      And yes. You will be ready!

  2. Which is why teaching is not something everyone can do even though everyone thinks they can.
