The end of the 2014-2015 school year is here. While students are off enjoying their summer long vacation teachers also get a vacation but it’s probably more accurately characterized as a working vacation. One important thing that teachers do over the summer is to reflect on the past school year. Teachers think about what worked what didn’t work and what needs modification. Paramount in their musings is how to help students learn effectively or, put another way, how to be the best teacher they can be.
Topics such as new developments in multi sensory learning, teaching strategies, curriculum content, classroom management and technology integration are just some of the themes that teachers may be mulling over the summer. The single most important result of these summer reflections is that teachers get re-inspired to get back to school relaxed, refreshed and ready to assist a new class of students with their learning. We hope you have an relaxing summer and return in August refreshed and ready to learn as well.
