<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>You’re the Best!</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>We’ve all heard it before, maybe especially at this time of year.</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”><em>You’re the best teacher I ever had! I’m going to miss you.</em></p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>We smile and think to ourselves, “I bet you say that to all the teachers.”</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>But what if this year you actually let it in, even just for a moment? What if you took some time to celebrate what worked so well for you and your students this year that you must absolutely do it again next year? What if you considered the hours spent on lesson design, the work only a professional teacher can do in a way that takes into account the curriculum, the students in front of you, and the evidence of learning that tells you who needs what next? What if you gave yourself credit for the relationships you build with your students, believing in them even when they struggle to believe in themselves? What if you celebrated the collaboration and learning you have done this year with colleagues?</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>What if?</p>
<p style=”font-weight: 400;”>Teaching (and we are all teachers my friends) is deep thinking work that engages our hearts, our minds, and our souls. Not if we’re lucky, as some would have us believe, but if we’re intentional. The next time someone gives you a message about your impact as a teacher, just let it in. Don’t deny it, don’t shrug it off, and for goodness sake don’t worry about the spelling. That’s what I’m doing with this message from a Grade 2 student. <i class=”em em-slightly_smiling_face”></i></p>
