I am struggling somewhat with the challenge of juggling the competing demands of teaching. Specifically, the demands of balancing the needs of curriculum, assessment and reporting with the human side of teaching, and the need to make the content appealing, meaningful and FUN. I guess this is something that I will become more fluid with as I grow in experience, knowledge and confidence. For now, I am trying to keep in the front of my mind, as I teach, that it is about their growth as learners (and individuals), not about my ticking boxes as a grad teacher.
I am 'remembering my why!'.
