Take 5 min…to check in on your joy!

Take five minutes to rate yourself. Set a quick goal to focus on one of the indicators, then check back in for five minutes tomorrow. If you’re brave enough, ask a colleague or boss for feedback by turning some of the indicators into questions.

1. I smile and show enthusiasm for the students, the subject and learning.

Always                               Sometimes                                 Hardly ever

2. I create a safe space for students to take intellectual risks. Incorrect answers are explored with interest. All responses are pushed for depth and refinement. It is not ok to laugh at others’ responses.

Always                               Sometimes                                 Hardly ever

3. I use engaging activities such as games, projects, manipulatives, meaningful and thought-provoking discussions.

Always                               Sometimes                                 Hardly ever

4. I build positive relationships with each of my students.

Always                               Sometimes                                 Hardly ever

5. I foster positive relationships among students.

Always                               Sometimes                                 Hardly ever

6. We have specific ways to celebrate progress and growth. Click here for a resource.

Always                               Sometimes                                 Hardly ever
