Don’t accept the DEFAULT, seek out an option that will be BETTER for students:
* Make it your mission to fight “We’ve always done it this way” thinking.
* Be a disruptor and shake things up. Create an epic classroom!
* Start slowly with little tweaks like replacing rows of desks with clusters of four in all classrooms, especially those in middle school and high school.
* Create the change you wish to see in your school.
I’d like to emphasize that teaching is a difficult job, but it’s the MOST REWARDING profession there is. I had a friend who owned his own business and he asked, “Isn’t it boring teaching the same grade/subject each and every year?” and my immediate response was, “No, it NEVER gets boring because each year you are challenged with a new and vastly different group of students.”
EMBRACE CHANGE and you will rarely be disappointed!
