I love the start to a new school year and it always reminds me of the Staples' commercials with the reset button...starting over! When August rolls around each year I start reflecting back on my school year and write down things I will change, tweak, or do again but just do them better! Being a teacher, I put a lot of pressure to do my best and be my best and now being a Math Coach this pressure is more intense....at least for me. I want each interaction with a teacher to be meaningful....for both parties. The biggest action step I have for myself is to enhance my listening skills. Really listen to people and have interest in what they are saying not just waiting til they finish to add my two sense to the conversation...what I contribute to the conversation should value what the teacher is saying or trying to say. Isn't that what everyone wants...just to be valued.
