As the school year is winding down, take some time to reflect. It's easy to forget this, because there are so many tasks to do now, but I found this was important. We need to ask ourselves four questions:
1. What worked?
2. What do I want to change next year?
3. What were my successes with students (nothing is too small)?
4. What do I want to do to prepare for next year?
If you take the time to answer these questions now, it will prepare you for next year. In August, pull them back out and use them to start your year!
