Is success in our teaching a smooth and easy ride?
I am currently reading a great book called Jolt which focuses on the need to always jolt ourselves into action regardless of our profession. My immediate takeaway from this book has had me reflecting on how good teachers are always creating these little jolts in their instructional practice. These teachers never settle for being good but are always in pursuit of mastery and the only way to measure this excellence is by looking at the learning that is happening with their students. These teachers continually jolt their own practice and are constantly reflecting on ways to improve. They are forever in search of new ideas to implement in their teaching.
Turbulence is a life force. Let's love turbulence and use it for change.
