Teacher quote for wiki from poster my wall.jpg

Our profession is one of the most rewarding on the planet but sometimes it can be hard to stay positive and enthusiastic with all the outside pressures. This month’s blog challenge is designed to focus on the exciting and rewarding aspects of what we do, and promote a little Attitude of Gratitude along the way.

Come and join us! You’ll meet great like minds and become part of a collaborative community of practice where reflection on our practice is our focus. We use the hashtag #reflectiveteacher to track discussions so don’t forget to add that to your blogs as a tag, and also to the Twitter chat which happens every Tuesday at 6pm CST / Wednesday 12pm NZDT

1. Add your name, blog title and location to the WIKI PAGE to be an official participator! (Click the link to add your details).

2. Respond to the 30 prompts in your own blog for the month of November, 2014.

3. Write as much as you want about each prompt. There is no limit to your reflection on the topic.

4. If you have time, visit other participators' blogs and read about their ideas and experiences. Feel free to comment!
