Join Two Writing Teachers and other teacher-writers as we share a slice of life every single day in the month of March.
Do you ever do something and then ask yourself, "Why don't I do this more often?"
Like walking, eating better, cleaning, reading, writing, taking time for me,
or writing positive notes to parents?
Each grading period, we are asked to write positive notes to parents. Today, we had early dismissal for parent conferences. Since I teach middle school, we typically don't have many conferences, but we still stay until 6:00. I took this time to write out my cards.
After writing out the addresses, I thought about how good that felt to find those positive characteristics in my students. Some days, the students who act up or don't turn in work seem to make their way into my thoughts. But not today. Today those positive thoughts persevered.
And I found myself asking, "Why don't I do this more often?"
