One of my favorite activities I planned for this year's Data Day was having the teachers reflect on why they went in to teaching. We have a mix of veteran and new staff, and I thought this would be a fun way for the staff to get to know one another as professionals and remind everyone why they went in to this career. I encouraged everyone to be creative as they shared their inspiration. During the gallery walk, it was great to overhear the conversations and continue to nurture the positive and collaborative culture of our staff. A few teachers have posted their #WhyITeach sign outside their classroom door.
