Ideas, Ideas, Ideas Email Signature

Posted on August 10, 2011 at 10:00am 0 Comments

Take a look at your outgoing email.  Most people have an automatic signature that places your name and basic contact information at the end of every email.  Some people get creative and add a motivational quote.  This space is actually very valuable real estate.  This space is an opportunity to let everyone you email know about something important.  Think of your signature space as a place to showcase who you are, what you are doing, and how others can join in.  Here are five ways to…

Potential is an opportunity not a guarantee.

As a parent we want our children to live up to their fullest potential.  We do everything in our power to guide their lives and mold their events to allow our children to grow and develop into amazing adults. If they fall short we are there to support them and get them back on track. Throughout their entire childhood, all we can do his hope and pray that they will work to their fullest potential.  Nothing makes a parent more proud than seeing their child working to their fullest…

Decisions

Posted on March 31, 2011 at 7:30pm 1 Comment

Within one day I make many decisions.  My decisions are at many different levels.  They range from what am I going to wear today, to what is the best instructional practice for a particular student.  Any way you look at it, “It’s Up 2 Me” to come up with a final decision.  As a good leader should, many decisions are made in collaboration with others.  Each of those decisions that are made with others is at different levels.  I must quickly determine what level of decision-making I will…

Hi Steve:  I wear a different hat from most.  I write science books for kids.  But I am a trained educator and I write a blog that might interest you:  http://educationupdate.com/vickicobb/

As far as that piece on Charter schools vs public schools, my opinion is that there are good schools and not-so-hot schools of all stripes.  There doesn't seem to be room in the metrics (the TEST)for evaluating schools for all the variables that affect learning.  What troublese me most is this huge effort to find a one-size-fits-all silver bullet that can be "scaled" up as THE SOLUTION.

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in childhood…See More
