As we head back into the classroom, I think it’s a good idea to really sit down and think of what makes you “tick” as a teacher. I participated in the blog hop hosted by Whitney of With Love from Texas to do just that! Thanks for making me think of ways to take my beliefs to actions in the classroom!
Writing this down was almost therapeutic! I had to think of how I truly want my students to feel about me and my classroom. This whole idea has been heavy on my heart since beginning the reading for a book club. If you haven’t joined the book club with Jameson of Lessons with Coffee I strongly admonish you to do that! (You can buy the book Multiplication is for Black People to join in now) Often, we don’t realize it but our classrooms can be a place of refuge from a heartless world filling our students with doubt and dousing the flame of learning we should be fuming. I could get stuck on the injustices that surround the very students I teach, but I decided to think of ways that I can make my classroom even better and a place of refuge!
This year, I am setting goals and truly preparing to be the BEST Mrs. Burden I can be. My class may not always be the most clean, flow as it’s supposed to, or even be the most fun. What I want my students to walk away feeling is that my teacher beliefs were upheld. I’m ready to open my heart and room to the multitude of students I know will enjoy the knowledge I will share and the love that is given through each lesson.
