Happy New Year 2019/20!

Here’s a New (Academic) Year’s resolution for ya:

Go psychodynamic this year:

  • Look for emotional and relational data in your classroom (the data are everywhere).

  • Organize the data into guesses about what is happening relationally.

  • Make a plan based on your guesses.

  • Implement the plan.

  • See what happens

    • Watch change happen!

    • Gather more data.

I promise. Going psychodynamic will make your teaching life easier and more effective. It will help you fend off burnout. It might even bring joy back into your teaching life.

Sounds like a good way to spend the New Year.
