Beliefs to Actions Blog Hop

I've been on a bit of a personal development journey lately. Last January, I read the book Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod and it was really transformational for me personally. I've been thinking a lot about how I could transfer what I learned in the book to my educational life. 

So when I saw this blog hop from Whitney at With Love from Texas, I knew it was meant for me!

I loved reflecting on my educational beliefs. Here's what I came up with: 

So the next challenge was deciding how I would incorporate these beliefs into a daily morning routine at work. So I created my work "miracle morning". 

These are the steps that I plan to go through each morning when I get to my classroom. They're based on the steps described in Hal's book. My beliefs, from above, will be what I read for my one-page teaching affirmations. 

I really think that reflecting on these beliefs daily will help me stay focused on what really matters. I also plan on setting some big picture goals. These will be some more concrete goals related to my classroom (like how I plan to utilize technology and goal setting). 

My daily quote will be something I use with my kids. Each morning I will post an inspirational quote for them to read as part of their morning work. I will read and reflect on it as well during my morning routine. 

My hope is to start the morning off by being intentional and setting a positive tone for my day.

  2. I just LOVe your miracle morning. What a fabulous idea. Love your beliefs.

    1. Thanks! I've been doing a similar morning routine at home and it's been great. I'm hoping that I can stay committed to doing my routine at school during the school year.

  3. I like your idea of opening each day with an inspirational quote. Such a positive way to start. I enjoyed reading your beliefs and I share some beliefs with you.

  4. I agree school should be fun and engaging! As a science teacher, I get each student once a week. I have to make sure that each time is well rounded and worth remembering! Great ideas!
