I just finished reading an excellent post by Paul Bogush, a colleague of mine who teaches in Connecticut. His post reminds me how important it is to never lose sight of the big picture of education and the impact we have as teachers with every comment and action we make. Our little idiosyncrasies, our grading policies, and our words shape the children we come into contact with on a daily basis.
Paul's post points to the number of hours a middle/high school teacher spends with a student over the course of a school year (170+ hours.) How do you want to shape each and every child you teach/touch?
I'd like to pass on the opportunity to add to the slideshow on Paul's blog and found below.
