As the end of the school year quickly approaches, in addition to completing end-of-year tasks, consider carving out some quality time to reflect on the achievements and challenges of this year for both you and your students. What key changes do you want to make personally and professionally to refresh your classroom, curriculum, and career? What will you do this summer to prepare for these changes or transitions? How will you go about it? What questions will you ask? Whom will you include in the conversation and reconstruction? How are you feeling and what are you doing to prepare yourself, your students, your family, and your school community? You will enjoy the summer much more when you've given yourself enough time to reflect on the current school year and reasons to be excited about the future.
