Obviously I'm biased because I think my own book is awesome and I consider John a friend who also makes completely awesome things ... but good choices! 😂 Thank you for sharing.

Yes! We had about 8 who piloted it in the 2017-2018 school year and more have gotten on board since. Most start with a team of teachers (and due to funding restraints, aren't always able to get past that--but it makes me happy when Ts aren't paying out of pocket.)

Thank you for the kind words! I plan to re-do and update that course this fall (you'll get the new version automatically since you already bought the original one.) 👍

All of which is to say that I know I need to take stock and be intentional about what I take on, whether it’s personal, professional, or political. It’s an interesting and scary spot to stand in right now. Want to join me? Let’s talk. 6/6

Asking educators to do ‘one more thing’ without removing anything from their plate is not helping the profession, purpose or kids.

Even though you don’t know when you'll have an unexpected absence, you can do the bulk of your preparation in advance, and set up expectations and routines to make things go more smoothly.

FINALLY…after an interminable review process by the People Who Approve This Sort of Thing…the audiobook version of Fewer Things Better is available in Amazon, iTunes, & Audible. 👏👏 If there’s someplace else you buy audiobooks, let me know!

"Ten minutes can make a reluctant writer feel driven and electrified in a way I’ve never seen before." from I wonder if this would look the same in middle school? 🤔

If you’re not sure why they’re upset...might be worth exploring. Ts tend to look forward to PD when it’s useful and doesn’t take away from their (extremely limited) prep time. But if most PD they’ve gotten doesn’t fit those criteria, they become cynical about the idea of more.

Do the additional PD days replace unstructured time for working in their classrooms?

Teacher Hoarders: it's almost the end ofyear, time to clear clutter. Great article by Learn to shift your approach from “Can I possibly use this someday?” to “How likely is it that I will NEED this one day to teach well? again?”

I don't watch Game of Thrones, but I'm still mad about the ending of Lost, so if anyone wants to commiserate over the wasted years they spent waiting for THAT payoff, I'm here for you.
