Summer is such a great time for link ups! Today I am linking up with My Day in K and Teach, Talk, Inspire.
Today is the Top Ten things that I have learned from teaching. This was not an easy task and I am not convinced that even like what I came up with.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE chocolate. But I especially NEED NEED NEED chocolate after a busy morning and a learning-filled afternoon! Let's face it...I need chocolate at all points in my day.
I can never have enough Post-its. They are all over my teaching binder, guided reading table, guided math table, countertop at home...all over! I am an old fashioned list girl and I need Post its to do it!
My first two years of teaching I saved my plan book and thought that I would look back. Nope. Every year brings its own set of kids, challenges, and lessons. That is why I love this career so very much.
As each challenge arises, I learn from it. Whether it is from a student, in a professional book, from a colleague, or in a blog post that I read, each day bring new learning for me.
Yes, I am there to impart knowledge on this wonderful little kiddos. But when it come down to it...my kids need a smile each morning and love. This is what will stick with them the most.
The one thing I know for certain...I will never know everything about teaching. My to-do list of learning will never end. And if I ever do feel that I know everything, it is time for me to leave this wonderful career.
