Vision Poster for Inspired Teaching
Teachers, what you do is so important, but let’s be honest, what you do is also very hard. There are going to be “those” days that wear you down and have you wondering how you are going to make it through. For a moment you may even wonder why you got into teaching to begin with.
That is why Angela Watson from The Cornerstone for Teachers and myself – Art with Jenny K. have created this vision poster for inspired teaching – to help you get through “those” days. This is a free resource that we hope you will take advantage of.
Angela and I encourage you to take 5 or 10 minutes to print out this poster in color.
When you are finished with your reflection hang it up in your classroom. Display it in a place that will allow the quotes and your reflection to inspire, motivate and remind you why you do what you do as a teacher!
This poster can also be used in staff meetings or professional development as part of a visioning exercise for teachers. Get the FREE poster HERE.
Take it a step further and create a complete visual display bulletin board that includes this poster as the centerpiece. Also include other items that motivate and inspire you such as photographs, letters from students, poems or quotes. It’s easy and fun to create. Take a look…
Since you used wrapping paper you can now tape right to the paper. Put your vision poster for inspired teaching wherever you’d like on the board. I used some fun gold glitter tape to attach the corners to add some “bling bling” to my display – have some fun with this! Get your FREE vision poster for inspired teaching HERE.
Now add personal items to your vision bulletin board. You can add photographs, letters from parents or students, cards, quotes, poems or anything that inspires, motivates or reminds you WHY you are a teacher. This board is about YOU!
I hope you have enjoyed this freebie. Thank you for all that you do.
Not only to visual motivations like these work well for adults, but they are also super effective with students as well. And with this in mind, I have developed a Growth Mindset inspirational poster that your students have to collaborate on to produce, and which yields a stunning, attention-getting result – a large (21 in. by 84 in.) poster/banner that can be displayed in your classroom, hallway, or anywhere else in your school.
My poster perfectly pairs with Angela Watson’s excellent (and very popular!) growth mindset resource. These two units certainly stand on their own – however, used together they are sure to inspire your students and your school community while visually reminding us all, teachers and students to seek a growth mindset.
Thanks for reading and for making art with your kids!
