Four Things To Do To Keep On Growing

Four things we can do as educators to keep on growing professionally:
  1. Studying a topic for only ten minutes a day can make someone an expert on that topic. Ten minutes a day translates into 3560 minutes in a year--or 60 hours.
  2. Read 20 pgs. a day--not just professional material but also recreational books, including books written for the age group of the students you teach.
  3. Develop at least one new skill each year.
  4. Continually use one's attributes, characteristics, and talents. One of Charlie Jones's seven "tremendous" laws of leadership is Use or Lose. This includes attributes, characteristics, and talents.
