Slice of Life, Day 29: Heads together

Today I worked on a tedious report with two other colleagues. With their focus, our shared vision and our A-type personalities, we were able to complete the task quickly and efficiently before the day was done.  Phew. One less thing to do.  Throughout the year this small team has worked with me on our shared professional development goals and reports.  It really has been quite a pleasure to have some company while completing this work.  Wish I could have the same “heads together” for the other mound of reports and tedious tasks I need to complete.  I am lucky though, I work in a place that cherishes professional learning communities and when you need it, there is always someone to put your head together with – it makes the tough work so much easier!

    Your last two posts–coupled together–aptly describe the environment that is teaching today. On one hand we feel like we’re drowning in reports, assessments, grading and other teachery tasks, but on the other hand, we have good friends as colleagues that can help make our work lighter. This balance is so critical to our own health and happiness in the classroom.

    Happy Slicing and Writing in the future–see you next year!
