The Painful Sting of Failure

So, I took the Google Certified Level 2 Exam last year and failed it by 4 points. That stung.

I was embarrassed, I pouted, and felt sorry for myself. (Yes, my life is a living hell.)

But after a few hours, I got over myself and realized that this is a real learning experience. I thought about what failing feels like to my students. Do they feel the way I do when they fail?

The difference between their tests and mine was…

Wrapping up another year

I teach sixth grade, so I will be saying goodbye to my students in about a week. I'll see them in the hallways, but it won't be the same. They'll never be in my classroom again. That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.
It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains? Did I ignite a spark, or reaffirm a defeatist attitude?
I have to be honest,…

Web 2.0 technologies: An innovative teaching Method

Introduction

Today’s world is a world of technology and education is not indifferent to it. We always suggest our teachers to use ICT in education.

So I accidentally blew up on Twitter last week.

National Teacher Day was May 9th, and I wanted to recognize that in a small way. I had a graphic that I created for a previous Twitter Chat, so I opened it back up, changed the top, and posted it with two small sentences and hash tagged it with #NationalTeachersDay. I tagged my usual tribe in the graphic so they would re-tweet it for me; they’re awesome like that. After that, I went about my day.…

What I've learned from tiny little dictators

These North Korean officers are standing there proudly and why shouldn't they? They're wearing enough bling on their uniforms to set off metal detectors.

If you notice along the side of my blog, I've got some micro-credentials: Google, Microsoft, CommonSense, etc. I'm proud of the work I've done to earn…

Mi Diario # 4

Después que termino este semestre y esta clase también, voy a tomar otra clase de español. Para mejorar mi escritura en el idioma que mi familia y yo hablamos. Y también para prender cosas nuevas  y repasar cosas que voy a olvidar en la futuro. También voy a necesitar tomar otra clases de español para mi especialidad en sicología.

Education

It is far more important to enhance learning via high quality content and instructional transformation than it is to simply replace a pencil with a tablet and hope for the best.

Mi Diario 5#

En la clases de Espanol 119 vimos la historia de Ana Maria Matute.  Ana Matute me parecio muy sabia, vimos una persona a la cual habla de experiencias y de la vida.  Aun mas llena de vida, cuando hablaba de el amor a la literatura. Al oirla hablar me daban ganas de leer un libro,  Es una historia que inspira y mas que fue mujer y logro ser una escritora.  Me hizo recordar que bueno me sentia al leer.

EDUCATION & DEVELOPMENT: SYNONYMS?

In view of the digital explosion that surrounds today’s schools, the correlation between Education strategies and their impact on Social Development has been put into discussion as the key for developing nations to get started on what I call “Smart Development” – at this point, innovative classrooms can be seen as inspiring places for students to strengthen their creative thinking skills, getting even more prepared to become multiply skilled professionals in the…

Parent Teacher Conference is a learning experience for me

While staying late sitting in my classroom until its dark is not the way I want to spend a day, I do find Parent Teacher Conference Night a way for me to be a better teacher.

I love seeing the family dynamic. Kids can be so funny; they behave one way in the classroom and act completely different around their parents. Seeing how much the parent loves their child is also a reminder that the kid in my class is actually someone's child. They're young and out in the world without their…
