Our daily work, whether inside or outside of the home, can have its ups and downs. I love my job as a teacher, and after a challenging yet rewarding school year, I decided to create a layout focusing on my positive accomplishments during my fifth year of teaching. I used a photo taken by a student of mine and journaled my accomplishments in a list below.
In the 2009-2010 school year I: *Moved up from 4th to 5th grade *Looped with 20 kids and gained 6 more *Completed a TERC project on looping *Learned a new curriculum *Survived Outdoor Ed. *Mentored a student teacher *Got a Smart Board *Completed the Smart Board class *Completed the Daily 5 class *Completed the Diversity class *Wrote a grant to have my brother perform at West *Sent my students off to middle school!
Take the time to think about the work you do each and every day. What are your personal accomplishments? Recognize your positive work and pat yourself on the back by scrapping your successes, big or small!
