Motivate Me Monday...Teaching with Intention by Debbie Miller

Happy Labor Day! I hope all my teacher friends are enjoying the day off of work. Now...Raise your hand if you are going to your building, cutting, printing, planning and/or laminating today. I'm headed over to my school this afternoon and I know I won't be alone over there...

Here's my Motivate Me Monday from Teaching with Intention: Defining Beliefs, Aligning Practice, Taking Action by Debbie Miller.

I find myself rereading this book every year. Here's a quote to get you moving. You can print the quote by clicking on the image.

We're the ones in the unique and wonderful position to know where our kids have been, where they are now, and where it makes the most sense to take them next. Real life isn't scripted. Neither is real teaching.
