December is such a busy time of the year for teachers!

This is a month where there is often much to accomplish both in and out of the classroom as professional and personal schedules get hectic with end of year and holiday buzz. It is also a time where everyone is anxious for a well-deserved break!

As the first semester comes to a close, reflect on the professional relationships you are building with colleagues, consider ways you can nurture student inspiration in your teaching, and design and implement strong lesson closings to keep students actively engaged from the beginning to the end of class.

End the semester with strength, a holiday awaits you!
