  • Reflections on Professional Development

    Professional development for educators is not only a responsibility but more importantly a necessity of being a professional. In the ever-changing world of education, teacher professional development is a means to enhance educational effectiveness. Research in education has shown that the quality of the teacher is the most important factor in raising student achievement. Surely parents overwhelmingly agree that they want the best teacher possible in every classroom. In my opinion, professional development is an integral factor in making educators the best they can be, which in turn will raise student achievement.

I have been writing for their CTE Teachers Lounge and Tip Jar. These sites have great ideas for your classroom and the latest buzz on topics in education.

  • Leadership Development Continues

    Sturgis Brown High School is gearing up for the third week of school, and I must admit, it is great to be back in the swing of things! Our three days of in-service focused on the Boys Town Model for a well-managed classroom, project-based learning activities, department meetings, meeting the new superintendent and an open house for incoming freshmen. My Culinary Arts class is full and the youth internship students are getting hands-on learning in their prospective career fields.

  • Begin With the End in Mind

    Struggling readers often find themselves far behind their classmates. Due to the fact that the difficulty of school reading material has increased faster than their ability, they find themselves frustrated, and in turn give up on the reading assignment and associate the activity with failure. However, frustration can be just as detrimental to an advanced reader who is not challenged by but bored with a reading assignment.
