The purpose of this Life Notebook is to provide teachers an opportunity to reflect on some areas of their professional life and help identify their strengths and challenges. As a teacher it is important to like yourself if in fact we are going to have positive relationships with their students and other staff members. It’s necessary to get along with administration, avoid spreading rumors and gossip, problem solve, learn to forgive and above all take care of themselves.
Teaching is a demanding position and teachers who enjoy their profession are not only successful professionally but personally as well. This reflective life notebook will provide teachers with the necessary information that they need to move forward and not only help their students achieve success but will put them in a position to provide a positive school climate and to grow as individuals.
