If you’ve been following me for any amount of time, you know how much I believe that we should always be growing. I’ve always found it funny that we’re one of the few professions that when we graduate college, we think we’re done and ready to be the best teacher possible. Crazy, right? I am constantly learning. I’m continually finding ways to better myself and be the best educator (and person) I can be. I know that I’ll never be finished.
I want to throw something out there. And yes I understand some of you will be up in arms about it, but hear me out. I think it’s time we get rid of “Perfect Attendance” awards. Especially at the elementary level.
