Teachers often struggle with juggling their many roles and responsibilities throughout the school year, on top of priority number one: teaching. With a profession as challenging as an educator's, self-reflection is one of the best things a teacher can do for him or herself as it presents opportunities for growth. Thinking about what works, and why it works, as well as what didn't work, and why it didn't work, plays an integral role in the process of becoming a better teacher - and role model for students. Join our Curriculum Specialists as we go through strategies for reflecting on teaching, maintaining accurate records, communicating with families, participating in the professional community, growing and developing professionally, and showing professionalism - all while creating engaging lessons for our students and keeping students informed, motivated, and performing at their best. As the final session of our "Technology to Support T-TESS" series comes to a close, we'll help support you as you juggle your many responsibilities.
Students and teachers sometimes consider school their "second home." Because of this, establishing a positive culture for learning and a productive classroom environment full of respect and rapport is not just the teacher's responsibility anymore. Teachers and students must work together to establish routines, behavior management plans, and everyday procedures. Even the physical space should be organized in such a way that benefits all learning styles. Teachers shift to being the advocator for the needs of all students in the classroom, and the students shift to being the collaborators, encouragers, and supporters of the peers around them. Join our Curriculum Specialists as we dive into the third session of the Technology to Support T-TESS (Texas Teacher Evaluation and Support System) series, exploring a variety of resources and technology to support both teachers and students.
