When I asked students who helped us, "What was your favorite part of the day", Sebi (student) said, "I loved learning today. I didn't want the day to end."
As a teacher, how do you NOT walk a little taller after that. Rosa and I were so moved with today's gifts!
Coaches and Storytellers -- you make the world a better place for the kids. Don't forget that. My lessons learned today were: (1) include the kids in your problem solving journey! They will be better because of it! (2) Help your teachers problem solve with kids. Also, (3) it's not about technology and how it can "fit" into my lessons, but, how can we enhance the learning/ assignments/ projects with technology.
To add, Mr. Meade (Social Studies) said, "we have to use EVERY OPPORTUNITY possible to help kids have more tools to be successful." This quote reminded me that, for teachers, technology is an opportunity to provide those options for our kids. Our fears can reduce those options if we make it about the teacher first. Thanks, Mr Meade, for the reminder as to why this is the right thing to do.
Team leaders: , , -- it was a REMARKABLE day! Thanks for everything you did to make today a priority. These images were some of my favorite moments.
Thank you, kids, for being Amazing!
