Thanks for joining me!
A few weeks ago, I joined Twitter as part of a pilot program for our school. Initially, I was overwhelmed. There was so much to take in. Once I began to explore, I was like a kid in a candy store. I discovered an amazing network of educators who share ideas, wonderings, experiences and so much more.
I began to download books and was particularly struck by “The Innovator’s Mindset: Empower Learning, Unleash Talent, and Lead a Culture of Creativity” by George Couros. I am an avid reader and usually read quite quickly. However, I find myself taking my time and have gone crazy with the highlighter. One quote stuck with me:
“I believe in my voice and experiences, as well as the voice and experiences of others, as they are important for moving education forward.” George Couros
I began to wonder if I had anything of value to share. At this point, I’m still not sure, but I am willing to take the risk to put myself out there. I hope that this journey will help me to believe that I am enough and to honor learners.
