If Then Creativity: June Newsletter Educational Content Roundup


Summer is officially underway!  I hope everyone is enjoying some much needed rest and relaxation.

If positive reflection is a practice you want to continue in your classroom this fall, download my 20 Day Self-Reflection Plan. The twenty daily reflections are grouped into four teaching domains (planning & preparation, classroom environment, instruction, professional responsibilities) and focus on the positive actions and strategies teachers perform in their classrooms.  Thinking about these positive accomplishments will lead to creative ideas and/or actions that help reframe issues and perspectives.
