R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Third grade. First row. Last seat. That's where I was supposed to be sitting when Mrs. Drake told me to sit down because she was reading from Paddington Bear. I still remember how that moment affected me. Mrs. Drake was unhappy with me. I still remember how I NEVER DID IT AGAIN.

Step By Step, Rung By Rung

Reflection is such an important thing for me. Every day, when my day is over, I look back and see what I did and how I could do it differently. I'm not sure I've ever had a day that I thought I did everything perfectly. I'm usually very hard on myself. When I am alone with my thoughts, I have time to think about all the mistakes I made that day. It's a very difficult process I put myself through, but it makes me a better teacher.
