Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels,
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels,
and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

Kicking off the School Year!

Are you excited to start the school year?  I'd like you to take a few moments and think about that excitement.  It's important to continue that excitement throughout the year.  I'd encourage you to take a few minutes and write your vision.  Take an index card, and list the ten reasons you are excited to be a teacher.  Why do you know you are going to make a difference this year?  What are you most looking forward to?  During the year, when your enthusiasm wanes, take a look at your index card and revisit your vision.  I know you are going to make a difference this year.  Take time to write why you believe that's true!
