As always you nail it John. I too have sat on the side of the critic and when it really comes down to it, what does it matter? Each person should be entitled to experience the conference, as with anything, as they see fit. For me, just be honest and go with it.

A little end of the year reflection.
As another school year draws to a close I always like to look back and reflect on the year. For me this was an especially difficult and trying to school year. The students that I worked with although rewarding, were often cha...

Adults are the Problem
The other night I was having a conversation with a good friend of
mine on twitter. Over the course of the conversation I made the comment “adults
are always the problem”. I said it half jokingly and even made a side comment
and promise to use it in my next ...

Recently,
I was interviewed by a former student who is now studying to be a teacher. I
have been interviewed by college students who are preparing to be teachers
numerous times before. One of the questions I always get asked is what is my

Thinking back to last summer in Brazil and how soccer is so embedded into their culture.

+William Chamberlain I think you are spot on. I have found myself guilty of complaining about the tests as well. While I think they are not the best use of our time in schools, you are right in saying they are not the worst. We have far more issues facing our students and teachers that cause far more harm that standardized testing. 
The Los Angeles Clippers owner is a blatant racist whose actions have been proven to be racist. However, I don't blame the players for continuing to work hard and fight for a potential championship. The Clippers are more than...

+Bill Ferriter  I think you are spot on in your assessment of schools not being set up for teachers to be exposed to good teaching. Way too many initiatives, meetings and meetings about initiatives that get in the way of actually witnessing and being in the presence of good teaching. I always laugh at the amount of time we talk about good teaching or read books about it and how little time we actually see it in action.

As a team leader I will often cancel my meetings and roam the halls stepping in and out of classrooms just to get a feel of what is going on in the building and seeing my co-workers do what they do best. We need to encourage more intentional roaming. :)

As always I enjoy reading John's writing but this one especially rings true with me and many of the kids I teach...not to mention my own sons. 
I've always been drawn to the surreal, to the creative, to the mental spaces not confined to the rules of the universe. I just never realized that there was something wrong with that.  When I first read the New York Times art...
