Hello, I'm new to the group. I currently am teaching part-time Pk-12 vocal music at a public school and 8-9 credit hours at a Community College. Considering getting out of the public education sector, but unsure where I want to go from there. Would love to get on at the Community College full-time, but not an availability as of yet.
Happy New Year Everyone! Can any of us believe that we are now going into the second-half of the year? Just seems like its going so fast. Does anyone in this group know much about Charter schools? Interested in hearing what folks know about charter schools, how to set them up. Just curious. Have a great New Year. What are your goals for 2014......professionally, personally? Lets use this group to support each other at achieving some of our goals.
Hey everyone! Happy Friday! (Even though it's Friday the 13th ...)
I wanted to share this with you in case you're interested ...
I’m very excited to be offering my first product, beginning today. It’s called The Take Note System, and it’s a complete Evernote training system specifically designed for those who lead and create: artists, teachers, speakers, writers, coaches, podcasters, bloggers, and others.
From today until Dec. 20 I’m offering a special VIP Pre-Launch Package on The Take Note System. The training material won’t be available until Jan. 13, but if you purchase within the next few days you get an incredible pre-launch deal that includes the full system, plus a ton of great bonuses. This includes
This is the lowest price it will ever be, so grab it while you can!
Evernote is a great tool to help you get organized, reduce stress, and focus on doing the work that matters. It's a massive help with many aspects of teaching: storing ideas, clipping material from the web, consolidating research, collaborating with others, outlining content and so much more. As a college Professor I use Evernote extensively for class preparation and organizing ideas. I have also used it to share material with students.
I hope you’ll check out The Take Note System. The special VIP Pre-Launch Package is only available from today until Dec. 20. If you have questions, let me know — I’m here to help!
New to the group. I am a licensed special educator in Tennessee. I currently teacher inclusion English and I am a writer (fiction and non-fiction). Glad to be a part of the group. @BlackScholaronl
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.
