Through my eyes …

Do classroom teachers know that they are valued?

Do they know how awesome they are and that they are doing amazing things to move children’s thinking every day?

Until recently, I was in my own classroom everyday. I never thought about all the things that I did. I just did them! This year, as I enter other people’s classrooms in a different capacity, I get to see things through different eyes …And I am in awe.

Today, I have the opportunity to sit in the staff room and chat to some of my colleagues while we are working. I start to talk about this new discovery and I watch as one of the teachers (who is part of my awe) looks at me with expectant eyes. ‘What is she going to say about us?’ I see her think.

Do teachers know how awesome they are?

How do we get them to really see themselves and consider who they are and all that they do?
