5 Thoughts on the school year.

What has been your ONE big struggle during this school year?

  1. Managing my time between school work, course work, and family.  This has been really hard.

Share TWO accomplishments that you are proud of from this school year?

  1. I am getting ready to start my first big time research project – super excited!
  2. I launched my website as me – this took more work than I had planned on, but was totally worth it.

What are THREE things you wish to accomplish before the end of the school year?

  1. I have another research project bouncing around in my brain – it would be really interesting.  I need to get started on getting university approval.  Like yesterday…
  2. Give my preservice teachers a wealth of resources that they can take with them as they move into their own classrooms, which will happen in the near future.
  3. Start a manuscript – this is a big step.  This is one of those “my dream scares me” types of moments.

Give FOUR reasons why you remain in education in today’s rough culture.

  1. There are students who need a teacher.  One who is passionate about education.  I am that guy.
  2. There are teachers who strive to get better.  I want to strive with them.
  3. Educational Technology. Wow.
  4. The collaboration that happens between colleagues.  I would not be doing what I am doing if conversations didn’t happen.

Which FIVE people do you hope will take the challenge of answering these questions.

  1. @BlueCerealEduc – It will be interesting to read!
  2. Meghan Loyd – Rainbows and Unicorns
  3. Telannia Norfar – PBL Goddess
  4. Vanessa Perez – PD Goddess – How does she find all of this stuff???
  5. Erin Barnes – Just cuz – her world is cool!
