The End of the Year and Big Stuff
It is the end of the year. Normally, in other careers, it might be good chance to think about how you did the last year and add up your accomplishments. However, since teachers’ years start in September, or if you are here in Japan in April, we do not usually do that.
Nevertheless, we should take a look at the “Big Stuff.” Are we happy about where we are in our teaching career? Are you satisfied with the methods you are using? And, for most of us, that answer may be “no.” There are always ways to improve our methods, and it might be time to look around, think, and just stare out the window. The answer is out there.
