During our Monday morning school reading period, I like to read through the pile of educational technology magazines that normally stack up (and until we began this reading time were often ignored…). Top on the pile this week was Edutopia (one of my favorites). In the monthly feature, Sage Advice, the question put to readers was, “What would you teach a teacher?”
The first two responses (both from New Yorkers, BTW) are:
- Realize you are in the people business! (Dan Murray, Principal, Wheatland-Chili Middle School)
- Never stop learning. (Kristen Montgomery, English Teacher, Canajoharie High School)
There it is again – my mantra – A School is People Learning. The other responses were excellent as well – its just that the first two rang especially true for me.
