Yesterday we had an interesting discussion about values and what we value as individuals, as teachers, a school, and a community of learners. It was interesting to reflect on how our values shape our teaching practice, and how we measure if we are doing a good job of the things that we value. The next time you read your schools mission statement think about if you are doing a good thing about actually doing those things.
During the discussion we divided into 2 groups and each group took a slightly different approach, but yet in the end the things that we value are both very similar. Although we have just scratched the surface in this investigation, I am hopeful that it will have a positive impact on our team, as we search for a deeper meaning.
