Always Learning...

It's my motto, always learning, it's what we do as teachers.  One of the reasons why I took my Coaching job, is that I get to learn so much.  From different training's I get to attend, to watching teachers teach, to collaborating with teachers, there is so much to learn.

2016 is going to be here in a matter of days, and the new year is always a good time for new learning.  +Rae Fearing  is a Google Certified Educator/Trainer/Innovator, you name it she is amazing with Google.  I would like to be a fraction as good as she is.  So my goal for 2016 is to start my training as a Level 1 Google Educator.  My first step is to meet with Rae and see what I'm in for. I'm ready and can't wait to learn, but also share what I've learned.

I've blogged about this before, Things We Have to Stop Pretending, to make school different.  It's a powerful reminder that we need to think about and reflect upon our teaching practice.  The things we were taught are not the things we teach our kids.  As an Instructional Coach, I'm trying to #MakeSchoolDifferent by guiding teachers and helping them with technology.  For some teachers technology is very foreign and not a comfortable topic.  For others, it's old hat and they use it often.  My job is to help teachers get out of their comfort zone, push the ones that are comfortable and guide the ones that aren't.  Their students will benefit greatly.

Relax & Smile

I don't know this little girl, but she looks an awful lot like me when I was a little girl.  
It's that time of they year when we can all get a bit stressed and overworked. Take a minute to relax, smile and do something nice for yourself.  I know you deserve it.
