There are many rules and protocols chosen for me as a teacher.
Some I readily embrace and follow while there are others that don't match my beliefs about teaching and learning well.
Yet at this juncture it's my aim to work within the protocols set so that I can get some work done that I believe is valuable and important.
In the past few years, I've engaged in a large number of events and activities related to teaching well. After all of this endeavor, I realize once again that what I enjoy most is working with young children to help them learn with strength, confidence, and joy. I find this to be positively challenging work so that's where my direction is aimed.
