Real change involves Stick-With-Itness
It’s a lot easier for an organization to adopt new words than it is to actually change anything. Real change is uncomfortable. If it’s not feeling that way, you probably just adopted new words. (Seth Godin).
Whatever you set out to do this year, persevere! It’s not always easy, it’s not always fun, it’s not always really evident that it is worth it – BUT IT IS! Stick with it, know that change is a rough and tumble business. Know that “real change is uncomfortable (at times)” and know that it is totally worth it! It is good for our students.
Starting new routines and structures in math is rocky at first. We all need to take a swig of STICK-WITH-ITNESS… If we are to set off on this journey. It will pay off. It will be worth it. It will be priceless in time.
