Working with New Teachers and PD

I have been absent from the blogging world for far too long.  I have taken a position working with a Turn Around school in Indiana overseeing all the teachers and curriculum.  The year has been crazy and since I have been so busy I have not been as active as I would like.  I have learned a few things so far this year that I wanted to share in regards to new teachers and professional development.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
