There's limitless arenas in education seeking the support of educators. How do you navigate the path of support given the limitless opportunities to get involved?
As I think of this today, I think it's important to devote your time and energy into areas that match your vision, energy, and direction. What leads my support?
Teacher capacity, voice, choice, and leadership
I support efforts that uplift the capacity, voice, choice, and leadership of educators. I believe that educators have tremendous potential to elevate student learning and experiences in school when given the support they need.
Teaching Math and Science Well
I support efforts that truly work to uplift what we can do to teach math and science well.
Cultural Proficiency and Community
I support the efforts that build community and cultural proficiency.
Teamwork, Collaboration, Communication, and Transparency
I support modern, authentic, honest efforts to build teamwork, collaboration, good communication, and transparency.
Research and Development
I support efforts that work to uplift what we can do with one another to elevate the learning/teaching of students via quality research and development.
I don't support hearsay, conjecture, lack of transparency, less communication, and little distributive leadership. What's great about teaching/learning is that there's little need for secrets or lack of share, and there's great reason, rationale, and benefit of good share and working together.
