Module 5- Session One

Being Aware

One of the most important components of a safe and orderly environment is being aware of those people around you. As an administrator, it is important that you learn about the people you work with. You learned a little about me by viewing my short electronic presentation.

Your assignment is to create a short electronic/digital presentation about yourself that you would share with those your work with. Your presentation should model what you would expect to know about them. The assignment must include:

  • Resume-Education/Training
  • Personal Information/Interest
  • Professional Employment Record

1. Post your electronic presentation as a glossary so others in the class can view it.

2. Comment on at least one of the presentations.

    Richard,
    Besides a very impressive presentation, I am moved by your passion. I believe that we don't offer students enough options when it comes to education. If you look at American education versus several other systems in the world, we value creativity and encourage students to become who they want to be. However, I don't feel that we offer them enough options to explore this. I completely understand and agree with the concept of alternative education and applaud you for being entrenched in it. I believe that we need more "alternatives" for our students. A group from Norway recently visited the high school in which I work. They run a non-profit that works with dropouts to give them a second chance.They came to us to learn what we do to ensure that our students graduate on time - our grad. rate was 89.3% last year - and what we do if they are off track. They were such an inspiration; I learned more from them than they could have ever learned from us. I love the "underdog". I have always worked in Title 1 schools and love it when my kids succeed against the odds!!! I wish you a blessed journey. The students who cross your path are incredibly lucky!
