Reflections of a PD representative - try not to take it personally...

I typically have a clear and well-thought out purpose for each blog post, however for this blog post I am going to simply reflect on today's

professional development session. I lead a PD session about 7 weeks

ago for all of the staff members at my high school on social media and

technology integration, and today's session was an extension of the

previous session for any teachers interested. We asked each staff

member to choose… Continue

5 ways to spread the power of Twitter as a PD tool...

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend the EdcampKC technology conference in Kansas City, MO. This was my first

"unconference," which basically means the entire conference was

participant-driven and each session was presented by someone who was

actually attending the conference. There was a big board set up in the

main room, and before the conference officially started any person

interested in presenting was able to… Continue

Why Twitter should be a part of your PLN...

If somebody asked me about the last 6 months of my life, I would respond

by saying something like this; the past 6 months have been extremely

challenging, but yet at the same time I can say with little hesitation

that I have grown more as an educator in the last 6 months than in any

other time period in my life.



The world in which we live is changing faster than anyone could ever

imagine, and because of this the educational system must evolve and… Continue

REBEL - Education Reform Blog - revisit...The factory model does not work for schools...

Tom Whitby has encouraged all education bloggers to write a positive blog on how we should reform the

educational setting. I have decided to revisit a previous post of

mine...



If you have ever walked into a factory that produces a finished good from raw materials, it is frankly an amazing process. Dating back to

the early 1900's, Henry Ford revolutionized…

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

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

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

1 - Listen to what others are saying...

Being able to speak is important...being able to listen is more important. If you can truly listen to what others are saying, you will

be able to establish an unlimited amount of strong and long lasting

relationships. Your ability or inability to listen, will most

definitely affect the success, and the number of relationships you will

have in life.



2 - Watch what… Continue

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

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

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.





As…

The unspoken hero of education...the sharing of experiences and knowledge

Last night as I was sitting in my doctoral class I was reminded why I thoroughly enjoy the cohort format of educational leadership classes.

By no means am I the smartest, most intelligent or most knowledgeable

person in my class. To be honest, I would say I am probably closer

toward the bottom of the class in terms of my educational experiences

and knowledge. As weird as it might sound, I am completely okay with

being toward… Continue

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.



1. Don't just care...really…

Why leading from the middle is the future, and why being compared to a pez dispenser is okay...

As education continues to evolve and change, it is necessary for our educational leaders to adapt and change

as well. All too often we see schools and districts that lead with a

top down approach. Even though this type of leadership has proven to be

successful in certain circumstances, the level of effectiveness drops

off over time and any future potential positive impact dissolves.…
