Research and Practice Balance

For classroom teachers, time on task is tremendous.

And, research is essential to keep practices timely and engaging

My father always said, "A little for today and a little for tomorrow."

Hence, each day I focus on practice while with the children, and research on my own time.

It's a good balance; one that moves me forward with knowledge and understanding, and a balance that makes the job more successful and meaningful.
