I love learning.
I love that, as teachers, we are constantly learning.
We learn about our children, our subject areas, our workplace....
We learn about how to interact with the parents of our children.
That, friendlies, was my big lesson this year. I learned and I learned it well.
I learned that it is so IMPORTANT (yep, brought out all of the capital letters) to reach out and to contact them FIRST before they contact YOU.
Seems like a basic lesson, yes? For me it was something I struggled with, but I'm very glad that it's a lesson I learned. Learning this lesson (that hard way) has made me a better educator.
I am thankful. :)
