Flip Cam, blog, cell phone and projector all in one day - OMG!

In my German 3 class we recently finished a story we have been reading for the last three weeks. We have done several different types of

activities to facilitate the understanding of this story, and each

different activity has proven to have both its advantages, and

disadvantages. The unique thing about the activities I have done is

that each activity is something brand new that I have never tried

before. As any educator… Continue

5 things we can learn from our four-legged friends...

My wife and I have been married for a little under three years, and about a year ago we decided that we wanted

to grow our family. As we discussed the most typical way of growing a

family (a baby), we came to the conclusion that we should start small

before taking the big leap. Last summer we purchased an 8 pound, runt

of the litter, slightly discolored, adorable, and loving yellow lab

puppy.…

Is it time for you to self-reflect? - 5 helpful strategies...

One of the beauties of education is that we get the opportunity to try and explore new ideas. In fact, we are encouraged to think outside of

the box to discover new and improved ways to engage, inspire and

motivate students. Moreover, when we have new ideas and solutions to

problems, we are forcing ourselves to evaluate and assess our current

practices. A fancy word that all educators have heard (some so much it

makes them… Continue

I hope you realize you have the best job...

The last 4 weeks have been extremely busy for me. We recently started a brand new gradebook and website system in my school district. This has proven to be an amazing tool and

resource as we look to ways to improve education. For all the greatness

this new opportunity provides, we have been faced with the never ending

battle of growing and developing educators so they can utilize this new

resource. As exciting as it is to work with educators…

Building relationships is all that matters...10 effective strategies

1 - Listen to what others are saying...

5 ways to share how you light the world on fire...

Last week I was speaking with a colleague of mine, and we were discussing activities we could do during one of our professional

development days. As we discussed potential ideas, we turned our focus

to activities that teachers could employ immediately. We wanted to

avoid activities that would require a lot of time and preparation in an

effort to provide our teachers with several very strong and powerful

strategies they could… Continue

It all starts with you...

On any given day, educators experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. How an educator reacts and responds to these highs and

lows can often dictate the overall mood of the day. In my short 6 years

as an educator, I have learned several things as it pertains to

remaining positive, as well as keeping things in perspective when it

comes to my professional and personal life. Educators have an extremely

difficult and… Continue

Changing the culture of professional development...

Most students from across the country have returned to schools refreshed, recharged, and rejuvenated to continue their journey through

the educational process. As students use their summer break to relax

and simply be kids, teachers and administrators utilize their time to

both improve and develop their skills as educators. The summer provides

an excellent opportunity for all educators to refine and enhance their

abilities as… Continue

Reinventing yourself = survival...

My first official working day at school was today...I witnessed ups and downs, heard screams of joy, and whirlpools of pessimism and

discontent. As I thought more about the "happy" people, and the not so

happy people, I decided to concentrate on why the "happy" people were

happy. I soon realized there seemed to be a couple underlying factors

that lead to their happiness / enthusiasm toward the new school year.



I have to… Continue

A chance to grow...

Last year I approached my building principal about starting a book club. The main goal of the book club was to help teachers grow both personally and

professionally. To my astonishment, not only was my building principal

supportive of my idea, he also provided the book club with the financial

backing to purchase almost one thousand dollars worth of books.

7 proven strategies that WILL engage your students...

Over the last 5 years as an educator, I have learned so much about student motivation and student engagement. Recently, I started reflecting on my current practices and strategies I have used to engage

my students over the years. The program I am with has doubled in size

from roughly 140 students to over 280, so I feel confident these

strategies can, and will work.

Good ideas spread...and win - what are your good ideas?

As mentioned in previous posts, I have really tried to utilize my summer to better myself. I wanted to refine my skills as a progressive

educator who is able to meet the needs of students in a meaningful and

influential way. As such, I have concentrated on new ways to integrate

social media and technology into my classroom instruction. All of the

ideas and suggestions I plan on using started out as ideas. In

particular, they… Continue

My new image



For some time now I've been reflecting on my identity. One's identity is formed through interactions between one's nature, roles and environments. In other words, it's rather complicated, and simplifying it in order to make it manageable is a formidable task indeed. The image you see here is my latest attempt to accomplish this task. The image consists of 3 major L-shaped brush strokes. They represent three words describing my approach to life: Loving, Laughing and Learning. The… Continue

With so much knowledge, how do you sort through it and share it with your students, peers, parents and community?

I've browsed the 200 pages of introductions over the past year and it's amazing all of the great ideas that are here. I share some of these on my own Tutor/Mentor Connection web site so that volunteers and students in non-school tutor/mentor programs might use these just as often, or perhaps more often, than do kids in inner city schools.
