As I mentioned last week, I’m going to run a new feature for the next few weeks here: three random posts from the back catalogue of this blog. Re-reading your journal is a great way to get new ideas and build your practice as a teacher or a writer. You’re reminded of where you’ve been and what you’ve already said.
This week’s entries are pretty good:
- Clio and Technology — a reminder that so often in schools, we accept things as they are, when in fact we are the ones we’re waiting for. It’s possible to ask for — nay, to demand — the seamless integration of technology into our schools, so that our students are served to the best abilities of teachers and administrators.
- Wind River Peak — I have stood on top of a mountain that topped 13,000 feet high. I did it through persistence, dedication, and attention to detail, as well as careful and diligent guidance from my instructors. It gave me a sense that I could do anything. Many things are possible to the mountain climbers — enroll in a NOLS course today.
- Graduation: “Well, it appears I’ve made myself superfluous to another forty people in the world.” What a difference a year or two can make.
