Sometimes, I can be a bit of a perfectionist. I want things to be aesthetically pleasing, neat, error-free, etc. But I also struggle to have a life outside of my job, as many teachers, especially elementary teachers, do. So, I look for models of exceptional teachers who instead of taking painstaking hours to create class books or classroom displays, hammer out the many projects that I dream of doing. Why don't I find the time for all the projects I want to do in my classroom? Probably, I waste my time striving for perfection on just a few projects.
