I recently wrote an article for ACEL e-Publications about the importance of teachers having a vision and 10 questions teachers should ask themselves in order to continually reflect on themselves as teachers.

Teachers should have their own vision statement in order to continue working towards their main purpose and to stay present in each moment. I came up with the following vision statement for myself.
“As a teacher, I aim to create an atmosphere that encourages curiosity and sheer determination. Our classroom is a place where students feel important, respected, cared for and believed in. I am a teacher who makes it possible for her students to reach their full potential, ask questions, learn from their mistakes, give and receive feedback, create and try their best. In our classroom, real world problems are solved and each student believes that they can make a difference in this world. Together, we celebrate each other’s success and inspire each other to be the best person that we can be.”
Take the time to come up with your own vision statement and feel free to share it below.
