- Meetings on meetings on meetings
- Connecting with educators
I work a lot. I work all day at school and most nights I come home and work more. I spend countless hours on weekends working. My husband tells me I work too much. But the thing is I love what I do. I’m passionate about learning (mine and my students). I never feel like I’m working because I enjoy it and I’m passionate about it.
I’m passionate about learning. I seek out learning opportunities. I attend EdCamps, look for local educators conferences, read books, read blogs, write, and tweet. I seek out new ways to teach my students. I seek out ways to connect standards to their interests.
I’m passionate about integrating technology in learning experiences. I’m on my phone a lot. But I use it as a tool for learning. I connect with others through my phone. I take pictures of what I’m learning and what my students are learning to share. I seek out new technology tools to integrate with my students. I’m currently learning how to integrate coding into my curriculum (please share if you’re an expert!) I recently tried coding unplugged to teach my students to compare 2 digit numbers.
I know the things that stress me out are must dos and they aren’t going away. M y love and passion greatly out weigh the things that stress me out.
