Grains of Salt
For quite a while now I have been a big advocate for teachers using social media. Specifically, I have encouraged the use of Twitter as a way to build strong professional learning networks. I know for me Twitter allowed me to make some very strong professio...

Best for Kids
You don’t have to spend a great deal of time in a school to hear the phrase, “best for kids” mentioned in a meeting or inservice. This phrase permeates into much of what we do in schools and is often the justification behind a great many decisions. You don’...

The Wrong Data
I have been a teacher in a public school for my entire 13 year teaching career. Over that time I have seen many changes on the education pendulum swing back and forth. One trend, although likely more than a trend, I see creeping or rather blitzkrieging into...

A Curious Teacher - Part Two
Previously, I wrote about my initial reactions to reading Brian Grazer’s book A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life . Beyond just the role curiosity played in Brian’s life and work he struck another chord with me when we discussed the phrase “good eno...

I just finished Grazer's book. Have you read CURIOUS by Ian Leslie? It's a great companion read. It presents deeper ideas and is beautifully written.

A Curious Teacher - Part One
Not so long ago, I was given a copy of A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life written by Brian Grazer . Now, admittedly this book was not written for educators or with the intent of being considered an education text. However, as I read the book, I cou...

Great stuff. Will be watching for future posts on this topic. On that note, I've been kicking around a question in my head. The question is a jumbled mess right now. But it goes something like this.... Why does a question asked today (by student or teacher or both) have to be answered today or tomorrow? In other other words can it spark a curiosity enough to launch either into a pursuit of more a) more questions and b) answers? Again, it's a mess in my head but I hope you get the gist of what I'm saying. Btw, I'll be copying and pasting this into a blog post, it's been too long since I wrote one.

I'm Not Resigning
There has been a lot of talk about the viral teacher resignations floating around online. I myself have recently engaged in conversations with fellow teachers who have said they are thinking about resigning or retiring as soon as possible. Even more are the...

A Curious Teacher - Part Three
A Curious Teacher - Part Three I am still unpacking many of the insights and lessons shared in Brian Grazer’s book, A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life . One of my initial takeaways was around the idea of curiosity not being a sought after or overly...

Thank You Mr. Smith
This post was originally shared a while back . However, as the end of the school year rolls around I wanted to take time to share again as much of what Mr. Smith does is hugely impactful at the end of the school year. As a teacher you are lucky if you find ...
