Monday Recap

There were a number of changes in yesterday’s schedule, but they all turned out for the best.  I have been learning so much about the teachers and their hopes.  One thing that is amazing to me is how many of the teachers have as a personal and professional dream the vision of opening a school.  ALL of them are SO dedicated and called to be educators and put their whole beings into the art and science of teaching.  Many of them are committed to also participating in more study, interested in pursuing masters and doctorate degrees.  It’s thrilling to learn more from these teachers.   I’m really looking forward to playing the audio back, transcribing, and looking for trends in the interviews.  So far, I’ve conducted 5 (Teachers C, M, My, W, and G) interviews with one to finish this evening.  I have 3 observations scheduled, teacher support, and PD scheduled for today.
