I'd Like to Improve...
Usually for me, it could be the way the tables are set up in my room. Maybe I could have reworded the Do Now a little differently. Should I have used a different piece of technology to help my students better understand the main idea of the lesson? These types of things cross my mind every day.
As an educator, I feel like that's the question I ask myself every day when I walk into my classroom, and then again at the end of the day when I reflect on the lessons for that day. It doesn't have to be a major change or improvement but it's always in the back of my mind... What would I improve? What would my students improve? How can I change this for next year?
No matter how well a lesson goes, I always feel there is something that I should have done a little differently. If you don't reflect on your lessons and your teaching, you really should take a few minutes each day to do so. You may drive yourself crazy thinking about everything, but in the end, I promise you that you will feel better about the things that you are doing in your school and classroom.
