Choosing the path of sanity and sustainability isn’t easy at first.
It requires trusting the process.
It involves sharing agency and ownership with students.
It requires the release of teacher guilt formed by the wages mindset of assessment.
But take courage, colleagues.
This is the path to joy in our work.
The path to doing what we love to do.
The path to reclaimed weekends and holidays.
The path to healthier humanity and more emotional margin for students, colleagues, and family members.
And, if you’re still not convinced: it’s also the path to deeper student learning.
