I like to wrap up my week with a summary of the things I’m loving that support my learning and leading.
- #TCRWP: I have written before about my love of Twitter chats and hashtags in general. Recently, I am loving this hashtag in particular. Teacher’s College Reading & Writing Project was one of the best experiences I had as a teacher. Over the last two weeks as teachers from across the world traveled to NYC to learn from the best of the best, I read their tweets enviously. I also learned through their sharing, which is the power of social media!
- Professional Reading: Though I work year-round in my current position, summer time does provide me a little more freedom and flexibility. With that I have been able to put a small dent in my growing pile of professional reading material. I am currently reading snippets of all of the following: The Differentiated Classroom, 2nd edition, by Carol Ann Tomlinson; Teaching with Poverty in Mind by Eric Jensen; and Number Talks: Helping Children Build Mental Math and Computation Strategies by Sherry Parrish. There are many more titles on my to-be-read list that I hope to tackle… someday!
