Today I have an amazing future teacher, Abby who will be co-writing this post with me. You may remember Abby from her post about reflections on 2020 as a preservice teacher. We are back and sharing the importance of vision boards.
What are vision boards?
Vision boards are exactly what you hear in the words, “vision board.” A vision board is a space where you can display your visions. This can be done through pictures, quotes, goals, and anything else that will help YOU see and achieve a vision for your future. A vision board can display ANY vision that you have for your future, big or small, and as many as you would like to see yourself achieve!
Maybe you are trying to make the Dean's List next semester, trying to create better classroom management, make 2021 the best year of your life, or all three of them! No matter what you are making your vision board for, you can make it something special and personal to you!
Why should we do them?
Vision boards can make a cool post on your Instagram feed but they have more meaning than that! Vision boards help you reflect on specific visions. They help you to get your priorities straight and focused on what is important for YOU to achieve. Taking the time to make a vision board can even help you eliminate distractions that may prevent you from reaching your visions. Once your vision board is created, it makes a great reminder of the visions you are striving to achieve! You may be feeling defeated and stressed one day but just looking at your beautiful vision board, can motivate you to keep working towards your visions! Most importantly, vision boards allow you to find your creative self!
No vision board is alike, so allow yourself to create one that screams YOU! If that means adding color, glitter, shapes, or words, do it! Make your vision board unique and meaningful to YOU!

Everyone loves to see an example! You will find my example and Abby's below.
Dr. Samantha Fecich, shared a vision board template for the new year! I took advantage of working with the template and created a vision board that will help motivate me, as an education major! I want this year to be a year of growth for me as a future educator and this vision board is a perfect reminder and motivator for my goal! This vision board will be hung up in my college dorm room and I will proudly look at it every single day!
My name is Abigail Azizkhan and I am working towards a dual major in Early Childhood and Special Education at Millersville University!
