Authentic Learning Begins With Student-Designed Curriculum

As the world becomes more globally connected and the information is to be gathered from a multitude of places, teachers shouldn't have to compete with these other formats to help students learn. Teachers should be engaging students with the tools they are already using, expanding their use and knowledge of the formats and letting kids choose their own adventures.

Attentive: My #OneWord for 2018

Knowing that change continues to grow more imminent, I will watch, listen and respond to the needs of all the members of my team to the best of my abilities. It's hard to shift practices that we have all grown comfortable with wearing that skin. It's time to shed it and emerge stronger as a team. New years are exciting.
