Voices from the field: The professional learning communities & experiences educators need

12 comments

Over the last several months I have had the pleasure of working with eleven graduate students at the University of Kansas. Together we explored how to develop and sustain high quality professional learning communities. It has been a rewarding experience that has included rich dialogue, research, writing, and virtual collaboration. Over the next several weeks three guest posts will be featured in this space chronicling what we have learned and discussed. We hope you will join the conversation by sharing your own ideas in the comments or via social media using #CTQCollab.

Welcoming the Old New Teacher

5 comments

It's been difficult for me these last two months, and I haven't been posting much.  At first, I thought perhaps it was just the difficulty of an election year, which bombards us with so much information that it is difficult to sort. On reflection, though, I realized I was struggling with a bout of frustration and anxiety regarding school.  A teacher leader I met via Twitter years ago has been there for me, and reminded me that there are things I cannot fix immediately.
