I just read a GREAT blog at Lee's place called "A Geeky Momma's Blog" . She shared snippets from a fellow blogger (and educator) "Bud the Teacher" who shared "An Open Letter to Teachers". Some of the advice I LOVE:
Take risks for the sake of learning!
Try very hard NOT to work all the time. Turn off your working brain for a bit.
Be a learner always.
Read and write lots.
And most important (in my opinion): Do good stuff!
Thank you, Bud and Lisa, for sharing these important thoughts with us! May we all "do good stuff" that makes a HUGE difference in the lives of our students this year!
