I am participating in the Two Writing Teachers Slice of Life challenge. Each day in March teachers from around the country post to their blogs and the Two Writing Teachers website. We read and comment on each other’s posts.
Today is Wishful Wednesday. I saw it on a sign on my commute to work today and it feels right to title this post as such.
Today I send you time to take a few minutes to breath.
Today I send you thankful thoughts and actions to brighten your day.
Today I send you sunshine between the rain – literally or figuratively.
Today I send you a smile.
Today I send you the peace of knowing you are where you need to be, right now.
Today I send you a gift. The link below is to one of my Workshop Wednesday presentations.
I started Workshop Wednesdays in March of 2017 to address a need of professional development time. I am lucky to be in a middle school and have the advantage of team time. With the block scheduling this year I have 30 minutes to do this training. It is always voluntary and the topic is given ahead of time.
I follow the same basic outline each time. I have attached my Google Slides for you to see. The one I am sharing today is from August of 2017. I wanted to start the conversation about personality and Introverts and Extroverts. Students sometimes process out loud if they are extroverts. If there is an introvert teacher they can sometimes get annoyed by this practice.
There was a ripple effect here. People had their spouses take the quiz. Friends talked about it at dinner. The most important conversations happened at school and people came to me saying they were communicating better with people at school because they felt they had a better understanding about how others reacted.
I would love to hear your feedback.
