Growing Teacher=Growing Student
"We learn with and through each other." This quote from today resonates with me. If a district promotes professional growth for its teachers, the teachers will likely extend this practice to the classroom. Additionally, the pacing and differentiated instruction from today, even with a "drab" topic like PDAS, encourages me to consider ways to make less appealing content more interesting for my students. The presenters did an excellent job promoting technology and scaffolding the material, and I actually enjoyed the learning!
Educators are both teachers and learners.
Learning is balanced, authentic and promotes growth.
The learning happens in the struggle, and that's okay. Don't be afraid to make a mistake; just be willing to learn from the experience!
