"Sharpies. I treat myself to a new deluxe package at the start of every year."
I've taught English/language arts for 16 years. I began my career in New Hampshire teaching at The Hunter School and then in NH public schools. In 2010 my husband and I moved to San Francisco and soon after I began teaching at what is now The Brandeis School of San Francisco. I've taught middle school English throughout my career, but next year I will become our media resource specialist. I am excited to revamp our media center curriculum and help build the programming for our new create/build space. I believe learning should be a dynamic experience.
Thanks, Margaret! Kaitlyn Huston was with me from our school, but I am not sure she's on the guild. I will chat with her today. The gentleman in our group was a presenter. I'll look back in the conference materials and see if I can remember his name. I am not sure who the other woman was.
Great points! I think a lot of teachers suffer from change fatigue. There always seems to be some new approach or initiative to adopt. Remembering that we don't have to do everything, just adopt the one or two pieces that seems to have most impact, can be a lifesaver. Thank you! -Sandee
