Kids will learn what they need to learn when they need to learn it
Know your kids
There is more than one right way to teach
Reporting is not evil
Report cards are well past their ‘due date’
Assessment is important – assessment for, of, and as
Rewards are not the enemy
Don’t bribe the kids (unless you’re potty training them – then give the all the smarties you want)
Renaming something (i.e. anchor charts) doesn’t make it new.
There is no such thing as universal ‘best practice’
If what you’re doing doesn’t work – stop it!
It’s not about the program
Technology is a tool
Social media is not the same as technology. It is not a tool. It is a life force
People are the life force driving social media
Teaching is messy
Life is messy
Beware of marketers
Relationship, relationship, relationship
Cause. No. Harm.
Love what you do
Better is Possible
