T.G.I.M. or T.G.I.F.? Which are you?

Are you a T.G.I.M. kinda person or a T.G.I.F. kinda person? If you don’t subscribe to dichotomous views of the world, where are you on the spectrum of T.G.I.M. to T.G.I.F.?

Last Wednesday, I was fortunate to observe a teacher facilitating a lesson for about an hour. This teacher has 40+ years of experience in public and independent K-12 schools, as well as experience as a private tutor and coach. Based on reputation and observation, I’d say this person is a “master teacher.”

At one point, she turned to me and asked the first question from above – “Are you a T.G.I.M. kinda person or a T.G.I.F. kinda person?” She then went on to explain that she had always been a T.G.I.M. kinda person. And she attributed her love of teaching and learning to being purposeful about that mindset.

And it never seemed like just a motto, a catch-phrase, or empty words. I got a sense she lived for Mondays!

I love that.
