Today I learned that teachers are passionate!
Today I learned that some teachers think what’s best for their students is completely opposite of what I think is best for students.
Today I learned that teachers are truly and deeply terrified of the consequences of their teaching actions in the classroom.
Today I learned that people still believe that standardized testing is the only way to assess students’ success in schools.
Today I learned that I need to keep writing and speaking about what is truly best for students.
Today, and every day, I am passionate about teaching and learning.
Today, and every day, I am passionate about the need to continue an education revolution in this state, in this country.
Today, and every day (thanks for the words, TCRWP!), I will think and act with students in mind — that growth mindset that we all so deeply need to incorporate into our teaching existence.
We are all still learning.
