If you are reading this, whether you have a signed contract at your old school, a contract that signals new beginnings in a new position or even a new beginning that has nothing to do with education, you survived the year (or are at least nearing the finish line)! Students and staff have looked to you for guidance and gotten it. No matter what you forgot to do or even how you fell short; you spent your days trying to make the future a little better for us all.
Teachers, We Are Grateful For You!
I for one, am grateful for each and every person who has risked going into a school building to help serve the families of our communities. In case no one has told you, you are appreciated.
As you begin your summer break, I would like to extend my gratitude for your loyalty and provide you with a top 5 list for summer break. Each episode has its own resources, so don’t forget to check out the show notes and share it with a friend or two:
After summer, SmallBites will be concentrating on fundamental practices of classroom culture and teacher workload strategies. Educators who teach in underserved community often struggle in these two areas for a myriad of reasons. We will discuss those areas and look at supporting strategies in the coming school year as a part of a larger take on educational equity. Further, you’ll have the opportunity to do some in depth learning in cohorts, so be on the lookout for that information on Twitter, Linkedin and wherever you get your social content.
Thank you again for being a part of the SmallBites Journey. We’re in this together.
