It’s Valentine’s Week and State Superintendent @suptflanagan and @MR_ABUD highlights a state and national effort for everyone to share what they love about teaching.  They are asking us to "Join the Love Train!"  Check out the Superintendent Podcast - #LoveTeaching.

We created a large list as a staff last year, a few highlights are below:  

What do we LOVE about teaching?
  • #1 for all of us - Working with Children!  Forming positive relationships with students and families.
  • Helping those who need it the most – it is our calling. 
  • Each day is a new challenge with the ability to make positive changes in the world… one child at a time. 
  • Guiding children to be empowered to learn and inspire them to be life-long learners. 
  • Daily humor – kids are funny (you can’t make this stuff up).
  • Educational Family Nights – making connections with the community.
  • Autonomy in the classroom – Once a teacher starts the day, they really are the ones who decide what’s going to happen.  Not many jobs provide an individual with so much room to be creative and autonomous each day.  You have curriculum to follow, but you can be creative in your delivery.
  • Individual conferencing with students – watching growth on individualized goals.
  • Back to School Nights, Halloween, Parent/Teacher Conferences, Family Nights, Vocal Music/Instrumental Concert, Art Show, Kindergarten info night, Ice Cream Social, etc… All things that highlights our building in a positive way – events that students will never forget – things that make our culture and climate so positive.
  • Great teachers who support children, colleagues and families.
Each day we continue to hold strong to these beliefs.  Please join us, continue to Be the Positive Voice in education, and show your love for teaching!  As you reflect on the week, remember to highlight the positive aspects of our profession.  Be the positive voice, and support the best job in the world... teaching children!  

Enjoy the week!
