I started a feel better folder about 8 years ago. When I receive a kind note from a parent, an encouraging email from a colleague, a drawing or thank you from a student, quality feedback from an observation…it goes in the folder.
So on a down day or when I need a reminder of why I do what I do…I can spend a few minutes in reflection while flipping through my treasures.
Just a few snippets of what you might find…
One of the best things I’ve ever done. So teachers, new or experienced…if you don’t have one, you should start one.
