With the educational infrastructure being pulled and stretched this year, educators, parents, families, and communities invested great efforts to rise to the challenge. No longer was it seemingly guaranteed which associate of the school community would be ensuring that learning efforts progressed toward learning expectations.
What are we doing? What are we learning? After basic needs are met, relationships are strengthened, and connection is realized…
What standards are we required to teach and learn in North Carolina public schools?
While our WHY might have been our strongtower in 2020, our HOW weathered some serious storms.
I’m reflecting on one of the true joys of the 2019-2020 school year–just pre-COVID. The culmination of a long-term project would finally come into fruition at the #NCTIES2020 conference just one week before shelter-in-place.
Connecting, consulting and teaming with Dr. Heather Kaiser and Stacy Lovdahl to launch the #Hashtag180 App has been an amazing journey so far. Yet, while I really like the product that my teammates have created, I love the process of learning and creating together all the more.
