Confucius once said, “Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner, and it is for you to find the other three.”
Think about the foundation that you lay for students, including expectations, at the start of each new school year. What kind of goals are you helping students set for themselves? Are they achievable? What scaffolds do you have in place for students to define their successes? Are you working to ensure that ALL students are able to succeed?
