My Feel Better Folder #MTBoS30 Post 11


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.

  1. What a great idea! I’ve kept this stuff, but it’s stuffed in random desk drawers or who knows where in my classroom. I’m definitely stealing this idea going forward! Thanks for sharing.
