After 12 years in the classroom I continue to learn and grow as a teacher, and each year I revise my practices to reflect my new learning. I by no means have everything figured out, I continue to make mistakes, reflect, and learn. But, I have become more intentional with implementing what I have found to work well for my students. One of those areas of increased intentionality is my instruction on character development. As I shared in my previous blog post, this is an area of instruction that has been important to me since my first year of teaching.
