MathCreating professional relationships with all of my students has to be biggest educational win this year.

MathIntegrated math 1 freshmen had a great and lively discussion about the application of exponents in the financial industry. They asked a bunch of great questions, were actively engaged and saw the applicability to what they were learning. "Your my favorite teacher, but I still hate math." She said it's the best math class she's had, so I'll take it.

Math, Special Ed
Students said "I feel like I'm actually learning something in your class." "I never realized I was good at math until your class" "I actually like math" "You're my favorite teacher"

Social ScienceMe team re-wrote our entire curriculum over the summer to start the writing process sooner and to make the content more engaging. The students love it and their most recent essays were much better than previous years' due to the changes I made!

ScienceI love that my students are so willing to share so much about themselves with my "Monday Check-ins."

A student offered to help classmates.

ScienceI have students (a small handful, but still) who are knocking down my door during lunch to eat inside my room.Moving all assignments off paper. The ease of this transition. The number of tools we have available to facilitate this.

A conversation with a student who was previously cussing at me and sleeping in class and believing he could not do better...about life, his family, his future that led to him turning it around in the classroom.Overcoming extreme behavior in one class period that was overshadowing any possible learning. (and not wanting to quit everyday because of it:))

Special EdI had a potentially very difficult IEP meeting that went very well. The team and I were able to help the students parents and the advocate understand that we were there to support them and their child and make sure that he was making progress and that we can all work together and collaborate to create a great plan for him. It was a very successful meeting. My class is working on a lesson about eating at a restaurant (ordering food, waiting, eating, paying, and leaving a tip). The students seem to really be enjoying the lesson and I think that they will be very successful when we go to Denny's on November 15 for CBI.

I helped a struggling student who is succeeding now; he nominated me during teacher appreciation at homecomingGetting students excited and motivated about foreign language learning - seeing how some go the "extra mile"

Social Science"I thought Geography was going to be the most boring subject ever, but now it's my favorite class! You make it fun to come to class and learn new things."

I have a very chatty/challenging class. I implemented a new behavior system called "blurt chips" not only have the behaviors improved but I have been able to really get to know my students better now that I spend so much less time trying to settle them down. I used a new lesson set up in my class during my observation with my admin. The lesson layout and use of technology was great. But most importantly the students loved it. They were so enthusiastic, more than I even thought they would be, to try this new set up. I was amazed by how engaged they stayed throughout the whole lesson.

Seeing a change in my challenging Spanish Speakers period-respect for other students and the creation of a "safe zone" where students feel comfortable coming from all different levels and working with each otherGreat conversations not only about the Spanish culture, but each other's cultures and discussions about traditions, customs and festivals in many different cultures.

After being out for two days in a row, I returned to my 7th period with the intention of them working for half of the period and then continuing to watch The Martian for the second half. I noticed it was almost time to put the movie on, but they were so into working on and personalizing their Google Drawing projects that I silently turned off the projector and continued to walk around and answer questions or give suggestions. The students completely forgot about the movie.

It was the quietest I'd ever seen my SAI Science class, especially on a Friday.

EnglishMy students truly impressed me in a text-based fishbowl discussion this week in class. It was completely student-centered with students in the inner ring analyzing our text, "The Lottery" and connecting its argument to other texts we have read in the class. The outer ring of students were engaged, taking notes on their Chromebooks. I felt so proud in this moment that I could take myself out of the picture and the students were able to do the 'heavy lifting,' if you will. It gave me the ah-ha moment that this is what I need to facilitate throughout each term. I'm very happy to now have a visual of what student-centered learning looks like so that I can keep designing these types of activities. A student told me that she was happy to finally be receiving constructive feedback on her writing. She said that teachers in the past would just give her A's and she was not informed on what she needed to work on. She told me that she believes she is becoming a better writer now that she knows what to focus improvement on.

ESL Learning grammar, spelling, writing sentences.

My #EduWin this year was updating a service of a student I advocate for. Due to her disability, the team was able to determine that she would benefit from a particular accommodation and different placement. Following the change, she was able to access the material in the general education classroom, and has been successful academically and happy to come to school.

PEMy biggest #EduWin so far this year has been when a student of mine came into my office in a really good mood smiling and I asked her why she was so happy. Her response was, "I am just really happy that I have you as my teacher, I love coming to class you just make me feel so welcomed and safe." She then followed this up with a hug and went on out to class. In my school setting and my experience thus far, this was a huge #EduWin for me!A second #EduWin for me would be when I had a class who is relatively not very motivated buy in and participate in a cardio based lesson.
