New Year’s Resolutions For Your Teaching Practice

This time of year, we race to get report cards done, organize end-of-year events, and communicate with parents. We’re masters of making sure our students, parents, colleagues, and administrators have what they need to successfully close the year and take a well-deserved break. And once the last day of class before the holiday break rolls around, thoughts of downtime, eggnog, and comfy socks take hold.

Finishing the year strong is a great feat and it’s admirable to serve others in our learning communities. But what’s just as great is making time and space for our own reflections and professional development as teachers. And if it feels self-indulgent, rest assured that the time we give to ourselves will benefit others in the long run.

Professional Development for Teachers

Going into the second semester of school, and a whole new decade, what if you prioritized your professional development and gave yourself the time and opportunity to set resolutions, and also follow through with them? 2020 can be the year you schedule your own development—first to serve you, and also to serve your students, their parents, and your school community.

FreshGrade has some resources just for you and we hope they’ll help kick-start a decade of making time to learn, grow, and celebrate your indispensable role in the lives of students. Check out some of the professional development for teachers below:
