Wendy posed this question at the start of her post yesterday. I was trying to think of one small thing I would have done differently yesterday but I couldn’t. Instead I kept coming back to one thing: I wish I had gone into more classrooms this year.
My kids were on a field trip Tuesday and I spent some time in my colleague’s room watching him teach Math 2 (sophomores) and man did I love it. I loved the conversations that kids had I loved the conversations I had with him after.
Next year my goal is one classroom every two weeks. This is a small goal but I think it’s worth it. My practice is better the more I see others.
