I’m feeling pretty pumped right now… Ice Ice baby pumped!
Today, I met with my mentor for the second day in a row. We are brainstorming ideas for the upcoming school year. At the end of last year, we dipped our pinky toes into the pool that is personalized learning. We are both pretty much “all in” to this way of thinking about teaching – progressing from pinky toes to a comfortable backstroke. At times, we find ourselves reaching out to each other as a life raft or full on grabbing the side to hop out for just a second. Personalized learning transforms your way of teaching.
A lot of my collaboration with others happens in electronic form. I follow blogs, pinterest boards, and twitter feeds of various educators (some I do not even know personally).
I invite you to check out some of my favorites and find your way to Ice Ice baby pumped!
