2012-2013 Professional Focus/Direction

Teaching is a BIG job!  There are many avenues to travel with respect to doing the job well.  It is essential that we focus our efforts and direction so that we teach children well.  Here is my overall direction/focus for 2012-2013.  These are broad categories, but they're the essential categories I will turn to when I'm prompted to right my direction and focus my path for the year ahead. 
  1. Teaching Fourth Grade with Care and Skill.
  2. Thoughtful, respectful collaboration with the learning team: students, families, educators, community members.
  3. Two-way professional sharing and development with colleagues online and off via conferences, presentations, courses, social media and more.
