How many years have you been teaching?:
I am a second-career educator after spending fifteen years on Wall Street. I have a unique perspective as an "outsider" who understands competitive advantage and business models. I love technology and learning and my PLN is like oxygen. I have a unique background that combines business, education, and software. Education is broken and it cannot easily or quickly be fixed. Innovation is the key to finding leverage across schools.
I like the idea of involving parents more in the curriculum. Watching teachers work together on curriculum can be painful and adding non-educators to the mix might bog the work down completely. Instead, I think parents should be able to provide input on the larger, essential questions. For a deeper taste, they could help grade student work.
