Memes, memes and more memes…
Every teacher should read “We May Not All Be Perfect” by Pernille Ripp before going back to school this year. It’s time to start paying attention to what we do right, even if we’re constantly reminded of what is going wrong.
I am so lucky to have such an amazing PLN! Whether we’re connecting virtually or face to face, I am constantly inspired by the work that these people are doing. For me, the best way to grow is reach out and collaborate with others. Not only do I learn more by working with my friends, I am always pushed to go beyond the goals and plans I had set for myself.
As summer comes to a close and we prepare to walk into our buildings to start another school year, think about the work that you will be doing. Make sure that your effort is going towards work that you are proud of – work that you know is changing the lives of your students. Also, make it a priority to collaborate, ask for help and not isolate yourself to your own classroom. Everyone needs a PLN that motivates and inspires them! Even if you start small, find one person who you can work with to do amazing things! Find someone who will push you to step outside of your comfort zone. Friends and colleagues like these are the ones you should surround yourself with! Remember, sometimes it’s easier to step outside of the box if you’re not alone!
Enjoy your week!!
