I don’t know about you, but to me, this 4th of July week feels a little different – and it’s not a good different.
It’s certainly one of the buzzwords in education these days, isn’t it?
And I’ll be honest – I’m not so sure technology is always a good thing.
I’m so excited to share with you a guest post by my friend & former principal Bill Blankschaen. I really can’t begin to tell you how much respect & admiration I have for Bill. I’m forever thankful for all he taught me about faith, teaching, and making a difference in students’ lives. Thank you, Bill. And thanks for sharing some of your wisdom with us today & in your new book. (more on that in a bit….)
If you’re trying to figure out teaching all by yourself, chances are you’re struggling.
Maybe your school doesn’t have a great support system and your colleagues aren’t exactly the encouraging type.
Sometimes the student who doesn’t seem to care is actually just frustrated.
This is one of my favorite takeaways from my interview with portrait artist Jon Kardamis.
Aren’t summers the best!?
I sure hope you have lots of fun and relaxing events (or non-events) on your calendar for the summer.
I ran the final grades and my heart sank.
I had done everything I could. This wasn’t unexpected.
I know you’re tired. You’re stressed. You’ve had it up to here.
Your to-do list is a mile long.
Do you have a problem area in your classroom?
You know, that one activity where everything just seems to fall apart?
When I first started teaching I had no idea how to counsel a student or what to say to a student who was misbehaving. And, yes, I mean none.
