This month I am joining fellow bloggers and @TeachThought for a November blogging challenge - Teaching Through an Attitude of Gratitude. Please click here if you would like to join in the reflection.
November 5 - What are your strengths? Which are you most grateful for?
Talking about my strengths is not easy for me to do. I think this is because I am my worst critic and I am extremely hard on myself. I tend to look at my weaknesses and many times focus too much on those.
Because I am such a critic, I am also a constant learner which I think is a strength. I am a teacher who wants to continuously learn new things. Buying professional development books is an addiction, but there is always something I want to be better at doing.
Being reflective is also important to me. Looking to see what worked and what didn't work and then making changes is also a part of my learning process.
I love going to workshops. I feel that if I can take one thing back and implement it in my classroom, then it was worth the money. Many people laugh at how much I am on Twitter, but it is because I am always looking for ways to learn.
I have been called a nerd because of my thirst to learn - but I am proud of it!
