    What are your big take-aways from this video?

    What are you hoping to implement now?

    What will you need more time to reflect on prior to implementing?

    I moved to part-time teaching 5 years ago and I can attest to the fact that it is easy to continue to work the same number of hours that you do as a full-time teacher, especially if you are dedicated to your students! I have also found that as I get older, I am slower at grading, making lesson plans, etc. So I agree with everyone that it is important to take time for yourself.

    One thing that I did last year was to do weekly quizzes for the majority of the year. My students became used to the routine. I was able to encourage those who needed to make corrections/ improvements to come either before school or during lunch for the 1-on-1 helo they needed. I also continually spiraled old concepts throughout the year on the quizzes and I saw a gradual “sticking” of the material as the year progressed. I plan to be more diligent this coming year to track progress on a standards chart.
