Breathe New Life Into Your Classroom This Year
It wasn't that long ago that I found myself in a rut as an educator. Like most of us, I entered the teaching profession with big, bright ideas. Over time this enthusiasm for teaching was tainted by the daily routine, strict pacing guides that allowed for little creativity or teachable moments, endless paperwork, unsupportive or uninformed administrators, little or no access to technology and/or blocked websites. Eventually I feel victim to these forces and feel into a submissive, run of the mill, collect my check and do the bare minimum expected of me teaching role.
This is the path I could have followed into retirement but thanks to Shelly Terrell and the 30 Goals Teacher ReBoot Camp my professional life and personal life took a dramatic change and my love of teaching came back stronger than it had ever been.
If you know an educator or you are an educator who is stuck in a rut, unsure of the first steps to take to get out, Shelly Terrell's 30 Goals Teacher ReBoot Camp gives you not only suggestions and guidance but a whole support group of other educators just like you who are working to transform themselves and their classrooms.
July 16-19, 2015 was the first ever global 30 Goals Free eConference. Over 30 speakers worldwide shared how they transformed their teaching through accomplishing goals. If you missed this inspirational conference be sure to catch the archived recordings and get inspired by their stories.
I was honored to be asked to keynote at this event. My keynote is below.
