What’s in Your Toolkit?

What's in Your Toolkit?

Over the years, I’ve often been asked “what is in your toolkit?” My response has often been “it varies depending on the day.” The truth of the matter is that over the years I’ve learned to assess my skills while constantly looking for new ways to sharpen them in order to help educate my students. As the summer comes to an end and the new school year begins ask yourself, “what’s in my toolkit?” Asking the question is the best place to start in order to build an assortment of resources for your toolkit. tlb
