Faking it

Today, my "much better half" insisted that our dog Chico could understand Korean. She showed me how he could understand Korean and sit and stay, even give paw. I had a good chuckle.


Not much different to many teachers who believe their students understand them in the classroom! Chico, like so many students, was great at "faking it". Doing the right thing for the wrong reason.…

Teacher to Teacher Webinar

I've long had a workshop fantasy.  The fantasy goes like this ...

I'm sitting at the front of the group and everyone is prepared for the usual blablabla, teacher talk, present, maybe have time for questions thing.  However, I just sit there. I just sit there and begin with the words....  Tell me what you want to know.

I'm a "Phonie", are you?

I recently had an experience that allowed me to peer deep into myself. Not often this happens to oneself, most often we assume we are "X" and seldom really have real, true information about our own selves. Much of who we are is built upon a fabrication, of who we think we are. Two totally different…

Teacher Burnout / Stress

One of my goals this coming school year is to be more personal in my writing/blogging. I know I am guilty of sharing precious little about myself. I pontificate, philosophize, condemn, encourage but in that, I share little of "who I am". I don't want to be that kind of writer, blogger or secret sharer. So here…

Teachers? Who needs them?

I've always, my whole life long, had the sneaking suspicion that adults really didn't know much and were just as scared as us kids and as frightfully "groping". My suspicions were confirmed as I reached adulthood and realized that adults don't "know it all", nor possess some magical "togetherness".

Schooling The World

This is a must watch film.  Mostly for the questions it will have us teachers asking ourselves about modern schooling and our role within it. 

The film challenges and "derobes" the thing that we know as school. It asks us - "Isn't there a better way?"  

Grab a drink, turn it on and begin to think, question, examine, simplify .....
