Professional Path: Updating the Teaching/Learning Schedule

For the past few months, I've been deliberating about what a good path to deeper learning will look like since I have some rich, deeper learning/teaching goals set for the year ahead.

Finally, this morning, a positive routine came to me which includes the following:

Summer: Focus on professional research, reading, online study and writing related to main areas of professional growth and interest: math education, social/emotional learning (SEL), STEAM, and cultural proficiency. Summer study at MTA Summer Conference.

School Year 2017-2018
  • Morning reading reflection
  • Weekend reading/reflection
  • School Time: Hands-on learning/teaching with students and colleagues
  • Professional Connections: In-school teams, out-of-school online share via chats/reading, out-of-school committee work via MTA/DESE
This is a reasonable routine that focuses attention/direction on the areas I've identified for deeper learning and practice development. Onward.
