Ten Questions to Help You Become a Better Teacher This Year.
Question #3 - Where did I waste my time last year?
Excellent question. I “wasted” a lot of my prep block on answering emails and checking email. I was a slave to my email in many ways.
I also wasted time on Twitter and Instagram. I certainly found useful things on both Twitter and Instagram, but I could have used my time more effectively in other areas – grading papers and updating grades.
I think it’s vital to just be cognizant of how we waste our time, especially as young teachers.
