As an elementary school teacher, I am always searching for new ideas and ways to improve my teaching. I’m definitely not alone in this.
In my years teaching I have worked with a wide variety of talented educators and a common trait many of them have is a thirst for knowledge and a desire for self-improvement.
Great teachers are the first to know that there is always room for improvement.
