"We've got to continually push ourselves, grow, innovate, and find ways to be different! The kids deserve it!" - Kids Deserve It! Pushing Boundaries and Challenging Conventional Thinking by Todd Nesloney and Adam Welcome
The quote above reminds me of a photo that frequently appears in my social media feeds:
Since leaving the classroom three years ago to serve as our building's Instructional Coach, I am frequently asked if I like this new role. The truth is, I love working with educators who are looking to grow as professionals, innovate their instruction, and make a difference for their students! I believe facilitating adult learning is allowing me to use my passions to reach more students than I ever could have imagined. Looking ahead, I am nearing the end of my Ed Leadership program, and plan to expand this impact to the systems level as I serve in a Curriculum Director capacity. I recognize it takes courage to step out of one's comfort zone, including reaching out to an Instructional Coach for assistance, but as the graphic shows, that truly is where the magic happens.
