My love for teaching is deeply connected to my love of learning. As a fifth grade teacher at an international school, it always amazed me how each student would bring a different perspective to the classroom. It was a wonderful opportunity for me to learn from them. I #LoveTeaching when students offer a unique insight to a lesson that I never even considered.
Now, as a Learning Coach, I am able to learn from amazing teachers each and every day. Whether it is planning collaboratively with grade-level teams or observing a classroom, I #LoveTeaching when I see other teachers excited to try something new that will benefit their students. I love that I am able to learn something new about teaching from every classroom that I visit.
My love for teaching has also grown through my online PLN. Anytime that I visit Twitter or scroll through Pinterest or read an educator’s blog, I am inspired. I’m thankful that this #LoveTeaching campaign motivated me to reflect on why I love teaching and coaching. This is an exciting time to be a teacher because today, we are able to connect and collaborate with educators from around the globe.
I #LoveTeaching because everyday I learn something new. As teachers, we no longer need to have all the answers. And that’s OK. We can learn from each other.
