Winter Reflections!

Happy Holidays! May the blessings of this beautiful season be with you all! It's an amazing time to be a teacher! When you are able to regroup from the hectic pace of these past three weeks in your classroom, may you realize it's also the time to take a deep breath and reflect on teaching habits and patterns. What's working? What needs to change in order to encourage and nourish growth in our students? WBT encourages educators in this practice of self evaluation in order to bring our students to higher levels of engagement and critical thinking. It's too easy to become "comfortable" and fall back into old ways. With the beginning of 2012, the weekly Live Webinars will resume on-line every Tuesday at 5pm PST with Coach B! It's the perfect opportunity to listen and personally interact with WBT staff and teachers from around the world! I always learn something new, and am so motivated by the input from fellow educators to Step it up! Check out wholebrainteaching.com for the latest updates! Happy New Year!!!!!!
