Many people ask me continually why I blog and how I manage it all. I don’t have an easy answer. For me blogging is about voice, presence, perspective and connectedness. I began blogging because I wanted to use my voice to connect with others to develop a larger audience with a variety of perspectives about what I am passionate about, learning.

Today I had an epic #EduWin, and I didn’t even plan for it. I recently became the liaison to some of the social sciences here. This has resulted is a slew of pretty specific classes (not to mention following up someone who was excellent at his job). It’s tough because I don’t want to change much, but I also want to put my stamp on things. Also, I majored in Theatre and History, so I am missing some of the […]
I had Presidents’ Day off from school recently. It’s one of the perks of being a teacher. Oh, don’t get me wrong. There are lots of perks when you are a teacher. Our day ends at 3pm. No weekend work. Long winter breaks, spring break, and of course, one of the main reasons all educators decide to become a teacher; summer vacation. Are you picking up on my sarcasm? I hope so, because I’m laying it on pretty thick. Actually, my […]
The title of this post might seem a bit trite or obvious, but some recent #EduWin tweets caused me to reflect on how critical relationships are in education and how important it is to spend time developing them. Positive relationships are made, they don’t just happen. There are different types of relationships in these #EduWin posts, but they all demonstrate respect and trust between students and teachers. As a child, I would never have thought to contact my teacher […]
There have been a number of #EduWin posts sharing instances of collaboration, shared successes, or teachers helping teachers. Planning Students Collaborating…Spontaneously! Learning from Others Helping a Colleague These interactions may come naturally to teachers today, but in my first years of teaching the idea of collaboration was a very foreign concept to my grade level colleagues. They actually discouraged me from asking too many questions, “We all just kind of do our own […]
Everyday, educators are sharing their positive teaching and learning experiences with each other via the WhatIsYourEduWin.com website and the #EduWin hashtag on Twitter. You may be wondering… what is an #EduWin? An #EduWin can happen any time someone takes education forward. It is a way to celebrate all the fabulous things that are taking place in the world of education every day! So far, educators from all over the globe are sharing a daily #EduWin, and it is inspiring to […]
The invitation to post an #EduWin has been in place for just over a week. This idea seems to be catching on evidenced by a few hundred unique tweets from educators sharing moments, large and small, from classrooms around the world. As I read through the submissions, I noticed some categories emerging: Spreading the word about #EduWin: Small Moments: Personal Moments/Personal Learning: Game Changing/Life Changing Moments: Collegial Moments: Global Connections: While I enjoyed reading […]
There are amazing things going on in education. Every day. It’s true.
But perhaps you didn’t hear about them, perhaps you were over at The Huffington Post reading about how all of America’s schools are failing once again. Perhaps you got stuck over at the New York Times reading about how low teachers get paid, or about more student hazing incidents on college campuses. One thing is for certain- there is never a shortage of negative stories about education.
Some of you might have noticed that EdReach is focused on sharing tools this week. My first choice was sharing all the resources I use from the BBC. They have great activities for my social studies and language arts class, but it is a very specific tool that might not be pertinent to most. I finally decided to share some of the tools I use within the Chrome web browser. Google is the creator of Chrome and they make it […]
StoryBird is a web tool that allows students to use artists’ artwork to create a story book. I have used this tool in the classroom to help reluctant 4th and 5th grade writers find motivation for creative writing. There are many applications for use, for example: creative writing, using art with spelling words to create a story, illustrating content areas in creative ways… the possibilities are endless! To start the year you might think about having your students create a StoryBird highlighting their summer […]
