Tomorrow is the first day of the 2016-2017 school year.
My 14th first day of school as a teacher.
I'm excited. These last few years I've been re-energized about the profession and my place in it.
My students and colleagues have pushed me a lot these past two years. I hope I've pushed them too.
I've been thinking a lot about the why and how of what I do lately. I want my students to think about their why too. To not just do. But to understand the purpose, the why of what they do.
I think I'm going to make this a poster in my lab this year...
To all the East Coast teachers who start tomorrow, never lose sight of why you do what you do.
Have an awesome year!
