Recognizing Tenure

Tenure If you are a tenured teacher or administrator think back to the day you got tenure. I am sure it was filled with excitement, joy, and celebration. The many gifts and congratulations were overflowing. You could barely contain the excitement. NOT! For most of us the day we got tenure was like any other day of work. Yes, a few people may have said congratulations.…See More

Ideas, Ideas, Ideas Email Signature

Take a look at your outgoing email.  Most people have an automatic signature that places your name and basic contact information at the end of every email.  Some people get creative and add a motivational quote.  This space is actually very valuable real estate.  This space is an opportunity to let everyone you email know about something important.  Think of your signature space as a place to showcase who you are, what you are doing, and how others can join in.  Here are five ways to maximize…See More

As a parent we want our children to live up to their fullest potential.  We do everything in our power to guide their lives and mold their events to allow our children to grow and develop into amazing adults. If they fall short we are there to support them and get them back on track. Throughout their entire childhood, all we can do his hope and pray that they will work to their fullest potential.  Nothing makes a parent more proud than seeing their child working to their fullest…

Decisions

Posted on March 31, 2011 at 7:30pm 1 Comment

Within one day I make many decisions.  My decisions are at many different levels.  They range from what am I going to wear today, to what is the best instructional practice for a particular student.  Any way you look at it, “It’s Up 2 Me” to come up with a final decision.  As a good leader should, many decisions are made in collaboration with others.  Each of those decisions that are made with others is at different levels.  I must quickly determine what level of decision-making I will…

Hi Steve:  I wear a different hat from most.  I write science books for kids.  But I am a trained educator and I write a blog that might interest you:  http://educationupdate.com/vickicobb/

As far as that piece on Charter schools vs public schools, my opinion is that there are good schools and not-so-hot schools of all stripes.  There doesn't seem to be room in the metrics (the TEST)for evaluating schools for all the variables that affect learning.  What troublese me most is this huge effort to find a one-size-fits-all silver bullet that can be "scaled" up as THE SOLUTION.

Wrapping up another year

I teach sixth grade, so I will be saying goodbye to my students in about a week. I'll see them in the hallways, but it won't be the same. They'll never be in my classroom again. That's weird to think about right now, when all I do is see them.It has me wondering; did I serve them as best I could? Did I impart all the wisdom I could into their little brains? Did I ignite a spark, or reaffirm a defeatist attitude?I have to be honest, there are some kids I won't miss. You know the kids I'm talking…See More

Teresa Conley replied to Teresa Conley's discussion Getting the same technology for students in specialized classrooms as the gen. ed. classrooms in the group Special Education
"You are correct which makes this a even more sad situation. It can easily be said that the students with disabilities who are included in the general education classrooms do receive the same level of technology as their non-disabled peers. However,…"
