Two Driving Questions

When making a decision, here are two questions to ask:

1. What’s best for the individual student?
2. What’s best for the school?

This may seem like common sense for many people, but I heard it for the first time a few years ago, and it has stuck with me ever since.

Using these questions as guidelines has helped me tremendously, but I’ve noticed two things:

1. Sometimes it takes a little longer.
2. Fair does not always mean equal.

I’m OK with both of those things because it’s important to make decisions that are good for an individual student and good for all students.

If this is nothing new for you, you’re way ahead of me. If not, I hope it provides a good perspective to use when faced with a decision.
*Note: I’m not trying to vaguely refer to anything, and I can assure you there’s nothing to read into. I just think this is a great perspective to have and wanted to share. Looking back, I know having this perspective would have helped me make better decisions and it would have made me a better teacher.
