5 Words to Start Your New Year in Writing and Education
With the school year well underway, many of us educators are using the winter break to step back. Even if it’s just for a moment, there’s some noteworthy reasons to do so. First, of course, there’s the need to de-stress. It sounds miraculously simple: time to just sit and relax. Because being an educator requires a lot of social energy, even the biggest extrovert can start feeling like they need to take a breath sometimes.
And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that fact. From writing coaches and ELA teachers to math instructors and science lovers, we face some unique challenges as educators. You need to recharge, really recharge.
Still, the winter break and the new year with it, give us a pause to consider our direction. How are our classrooms unfolding for the year? Which of our students might benefit from a change of direction? How can we better connect with each other and our communities? Each of these questions is important.
But rather than try to answer them for you (since there isn’t any single, correct answer to them), today we wanted to give you some beautiful writing words for 2017. Hopefully they inspire, rejuvenate, and refresh you to be ready for everything the new year offers.
