Day 95 (of 183) stealing some blogs ’cause I’m too sick to write
Two sick days in the same fortnight. Not sure when I was last hit this hard. Big advantage of having a school of educational leaders is that I’m not worried – even though everyone is tired (half of us now going to be away Friday) leadership emerges and good things continue to happen.
But I’m not in a writing mood, but I will share two blogs that struck a nerve with me this week:
Calvin: the unexpected gifted child by @byrdseedgifted : http://www.byrdseed.com/calvin/?icn=best&utm_content=bufferad247&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer
As a long term Bill Watterson fan, the antics of Calvin & Hobbes influenced who I am as an educator and why I do what I do as an educator. And I really enjoyed Ian’s perspective (something special about that name is my guess)
I also always enjoy reading the thinkings of @justintarte and his blog on schools being kid ready rather than making kids be school ready hits my home as we talk about reduced days for some of our learners. http://www.justintarte.com/2016/01/kids-dont-need-to-be-ready-for-school.html
I really appreciate both these bloggers and how their writing pushes my own thinking and doing as an educator.
