Quick post today...my brain is too full to say much! Earlier this week, though, I led a PD session for about 200 teachers. Let's just say that coming back has been pretty overwhelming, and I could feel the tension and anxiety and fear and worry and exhaustion (and maybe excitement?) in the virtual room as we gathered. Most of the questions are ones we don't have answers to yet.
As I was going through the exit ticket responses, this one caught my eye:
I appreciate your positive approach. It helps bring me back to a better mind space! You are an excellent teacher!
Teacher. That word hit me. Sometimes I feel like moving to a district admin position is like going to the dark side. But this teacher saw and recognized me as a teacher.
That was the greatest compliment I could have received this day!
