A New Year = An Opportunity to Impact Students’ Lives

Hello Hurricanes!!!! This Week’s  “STORM TALK” features a new year, a new opportunity!

Happy New Year, Hurricanes! As you reflect on the previous year, how have you impacted your students’ lives? Were there those “aha” moments? What did you love and what would you like to tweak? The wonderful thing about a new year is that it brings many opportunities to do things differently and impact students’ lives even more. Continue to get to know your students and build those relationships. Sometimes having a fresh start can bring different perspectives. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Have a great rest of your school year, Hurricanes!

CONTINUE TO STORM, Hurricanes!
