It’s June already?! In August I always think that this year couldn’t possibly go as fast as last year! I am always mistaken when June comes back around and the year is suddenly coming to a close. During those long winter months I long for spring and when it finally comes, it comes fast and furious. So much to do, so little time...
My to-do list keeps getting longer and longer in the spring. Each year I put on my to-do list “reflect” and each year it gets shoved further and further down on my list. This year I am making it a point to keep it at the top and to do a better job of reflecting this year. I’m going to reflect in a number of different ways such as conversations with colleagues, writing down my thoughts in a Google Doc or in my journal, and turning off the music in my car to silently reflect on my drive home.
I’m going to use the following 10 questions to help me on my reflective end-of-year journey. My goal is to select one each day between now and the end of the school year.
Will you join me? Will you take a reflective journey, too?
If you are looking for more questions to reflect on, see the Colorín Colorado article "Reflection Questions for Teachers and Students: A School Year Like No Other" by Lydia Breiseth.
