So about two weeks ago I wrote a blog post about the 5 best decisions that I have made as an Educator or more importantly the 5 most defining moments that have changed me for the better.
You can read it here.
I tagged a bunch of people and low and behold it took off. As people started to comment and share their 5 best I promised I would collect them for all to read. I have been a little behind in this but here is my best attempt at collecting stories. Please keep tagging me and sharing. It has been amazing to read what has changed and influenced you as an educator. Many also have really enjoyed learning new concepts and also seeing the common threads. If you want use the hashtag #5bestEd and we can also follow that.
So here is the list that I have so far (sorry if I missed anyone but please let me know I didn’t do it on purpose):
