The classroom teacher holds a powerful position. Once the door of our room closes it is up to us to provide the students with a quality and rich learning experience. None of this happens without hard work and dedication. There is nothing easy about teaching. You have to be prepared and ready for every day. The challenges you will face are deep and everlasting. Like the students you work with, you must have a desire to learn and a thirst for knowledge. Care enough to take teaching seriously. Care enough to stay current. Care enough to meet the individual needs of each student. Care enough to provide your students with a challenging program that will engage them in their learning. Care enough to be there for them and care enough to get them the help they need. Just care enough and all will be well. Thirty Years of Mondays provides you with an opportunity to quench your thirst for knowledge. It is a practical guide to creating a positive and caring experience for you and your students.
