In this time of uncertainty, it can be easy to lose our way. Taking time to pause & refocus is critical to helping us seek a new path on which to resume our journey. Every day is a PD day.
The journey has begun and we have set off on a new course, drawing the map as we go. We don’t know where it will take us. We must make bold decisions without rushing recklessly into the unknown. Every day is a PD day.

From the back, you can see things you don’t from the front. And, if you let the students lead the learning, you can see even more.
As teachers, we need to be professional about the decisions we make about technology use. Planning for the learning is critical to success.
Most teachers are drawn to teaching as a calling but, over time, that passion can be lost, not for lack of wanting but from lack of consistent refueling.
In order for change to happen, you have to do.
As you stand at the back of the classroom, what are the possibilities that you envision that excite you and give you energy? What vision do you have for the school year? How can you make that vision a reality?

I want to thrive in all areas of my life. To do that I needed, I needed to reconsider many different things. The first was to rethink about how I was viewing what I was doing.
