I'd like to share in this forum and would like others to share, short stories that might apply to education / teaching and that will inspire. I believe stories and a narrative are powerful, whether in our classroom or for our own professional development and reflection.
Here is my other series for professional development - Learning Through Stories.
Is it hard to change? I think most people don't realize how easy it is to "fall in a rut" and that in teaching, we are even more likely to do this.....whatever gets you through the day is a mantra I've heard often in my teaching career.
But I reject that. We as educators have to challenge ourselves, risk and try new things. It is stimulating and our students benefit too...So I say, "Don't Act Like An Elephant"!
