Reflections on the School Year: What’s Your Story?
If there is one thing I know how to do best, it’s telling stories. To be honest, it’s probably one of my most favorite things to do. =) Why you might ask? Well, aside from the entertainment factor, I believe stories help us learn, grow, and understand things better. You get to hear and paint a picture of something that happened to another individual. And sometimes these stories help us shine light on our own lives or situations we might be facing. I know school has wrapped up for most (if not all) of you, and through all my posts here at SimpleK12, I’ve shared a lot of stories with you (which I’m hoping helped you learn, grow, and understand things a little better)! So, now…I’m hoping you’ll return the favor. =)
When certain things come to a close in my life, I like to reflect. To look back and think about what worked, what didn’t work, and why. There is always room for improvement in my book. And with such a fantastic network of friends and educators here, I thought maybe you could share a short story or two of something that happened to you this year.
Maybe you used a new resource or tool in your classroom this year and it was a success/failure. Tell us!
Maybe your district overcame some major barriers which lead to improved classrooms. Tell us!
Maybe your growth on social networking sites enhanced your professional development more than you could have ever imagined. Tell us!
You just never really know how your own personal stories can help others learn, grow, and understand things better. So please, share!
