Just wanted to let you all know that my wife and I teach Junior High and the same school and are also youth pastors at our church. We started a podcast last year to discuss some of the issues we face and to give some hope and have some fun. We would be honored if you listened and left a comment. You can find us at www.twoteachersintexas.com. Please stop and give us a listen.
I have been teaching for 8 years now after doing many other things and have myself to be more and more discouraged by the issues surrounding education. I love teaching, but not in this environment. If you are teaching do you have the same challenges? How are you coping? What are your plans for the future?
We don't have the common core here in Texas yet, but we do love our tests. The tests we are taking are getting more and more complex and fewer and fewer of our students are passing. The thought in education today seems to be to make things for difficult and students will rise to the challenge, the theory seems sounds good but it doesn't work. I think the biggest issue in education is with discipline! Here is a link to an article I wrote for a blog. Would love your comments. http://www.toddbfreese.com/2013/12/who-is-running-the-school/
I would love to have a conversation on here about Common Core. I know some states have implemented it and some have rejected it. I would love to hear what some of you are thinking. Doesn't matter if you like or no....lets talk. Should be fun.
It's been awhile since I've been on this site. Busy summer and now schools are startin' up again. I've been spending my summer tutoring with an individual who also runs a homeschool. It all kind of started by "accident" a couple of years ago. The homeschool piece has gotten so large that this summer we moved it to an office complex. It really is pretty cool. The kids are kids who have been struggling through school, they've come to the company for tutoring and now are entering the homeschool program. I'm working with the K-1's and also the 2-4 grades. There are four of us running the homeschool program. I also get to help people learn how to create additional income. I have the opportunity to use the office facility to introduce folks to the concept of healthy living and making better choices for their families. All of it is teaching and coaching. Pretty cool.
So, here's to all of us..........moving into the new school year in the endeavors we're doing to help change the lives of our students whether they are children or adults. May we see the success we aspire to impart.
Congratulations on the ebook. I can't say that I am a creative or artist, but I did ready through the book am sure it will inspire many. I especially enjoyed the guitar music. You are doing a good job with your website and podcast as well.
Just wanted to post a note that my new eBook comes out today. It's called "Yesterday, Today, Forever: An Artist's Manifesto." It's geared toward artists and creatives, but anyone will relate to it and find it valuable. I also created several companion resources, including an audiobook, personal application guide, and a "soundtrack" of guitar music I recorded for this project. These are all giveaway items for my blog subscribers, but I wanted to make these available with no strings attached to the awesome people here on 48 Days. Here's a direct download link for everything! http://artistssuitcase.com/manifesto-bonus.
Thanks for all the encouragement and ideas I've received from this community. I hope you enjoy the book and bonus items!
Mike, have you gotten closer to an answer to your question? I would imagine the first step is to create a website that showcases what you do as well as having business cards, giving them out to those who ask at networking meetings.
I am looking at doing something similar as well and have gotten going with http://moscertificationtraining.com/learn.
Please share anything you have learned.
Hey everybody, I trust you all are ok. I have been searching through the different groups @ 48days and I think I have found a good place to start. Here's a little background. I am currently a band director in a small community public school. I like teaching band and I've been very blessed with musical abilities. However, my real passion, I believe, lies in technology and in video production. I am looking to get out of teaching in the public school and start my own business as an educational technology consultant, but I am clueless as to where to start. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
