I'm not sure what it is about Mondays, but they sure are not easy. I spent the weekend doing a whole lot of nothing and with daylight savings, I feel pretty out of my realm today. I need this feeling to pass quickly though as I have a lot to accomplish this week!
One of my biggest goals for this week is to observe in classrooms to ensure teachers are implementing their lesson plans. I feel like they write such amazing plans, I approve them, and that's the last thought they're given until the next week's cycle starts up the process again. So this week? I'm hunting for evidence of lesson plan implementation; not sure what it will look like yet and am aware it may look different in each classroom. Our children deserve our best, even when we don't feel our best.
Teaching without a plan is like going on a road trip without a map.I'm not saying you have to follow it exactly, but without that notion of "where are we going?" how can we get anywhere productive?
