Document Everything

In my previous post, I referenced a meme written by the author of a blog entitled, Magical Mystical Teacher.

I read the same meme in another edublog, A Teacher's Education. The author, Mrs. Chilli, writes:

The most important thing I’ve learned since I started teaching…is to COVER. MY. ASS. I document everything. I’ve learned that it’s a “he said/she said” world out there, and the only way that I can prove MY part in any exchange with a student is to document it.

Good advice.

I keep a classroom journal. It is a single Word document on which I record anything and everything significant.
