This day seemed to fly by, I have yet to decide if I was really working that hard, having that much fun or just not keeping track of time well. Each time I looked up it was like 2 more hours had passed…
What I learned today:
- When a teammate surprises me by coming to visit and work my day goes better! Thanks Tami! (Inspiration stems from collaboration for me)
- Conversations, coaching, ideas are always better when there is more than one mind thinking it through… (in my opinion)
- I need to learn more about the politics of education, like when is the best time to push the envelope.
- Digital Promise coaches left some informative feedback for OKCPS and I look forward to seeing it put into action!
- The baked potato soup was pretty good at lunch, I had expected better but it was still okay… We went to Slaughter’s Hall that I keep calling Slaughter House (Issues….)
- I work with truly awesome people!! The fact we can “keep it real” is priceless.
- Stress is not necessary when writing a blog post for our team, looking forward to it being pubished in the next day or two… I love Google Drawings!
- Our ILI (Innovative Learning Institute) team is awesome and is coming together piece by piece.
- “1:1 is not One Size Fits All” is going to be an awesome session at ILI!
- Taking notes and using agendas is a skill I need to improve on.
- Using my meetings as idea jump points is great, since now I am planning to work with Kenzie on student online trackers (Google Sheets) and Susan on online bootcamp packets (Pdfs & annotating w/Kami) next week!
- I am lucky to get to work with leaders like my boss/administrator and my principal, great people, great conversations, and true professionals who care about our students and where education is going!
- The Swiss Army rolling bag/briefcase I received today is ahhhhmazing!
- My son has too much and is overly dependent on technology! I told him no iPad tonight at bed and he informed me that his mind/brain is lost without it. Then as I write this he is defending the learning aspects of YouTube Kidsand how important it is to him, and it is the best thing he has ever had ” in his whole entire life” “it helps me learn, science, math, reading, social studies, spelling, it helps me, laughing, having fun…” and it continues…
- I really like and see the value in You Tube Kids, probably 10 times more valuable than regular You Tube for kids but just not tonight for my son….
I was 25 when I had my son, not incredibly young and I have a younger brother and sister but I had no idea the work my parents must have had to put in…. I need like some serious parenting PD….My son is too smart for his own good and mine if we are really being honest here….
