This week I would like you to use your imagination. You have just won the lottery and will leave your teaching post immediately to travel around the world.

Blog Post - Week 7
This past week in my own teaching I felt a little disconnected which prompts my question to you, "What was the moment (or moments) when I felt most disconnected or disengaged as a teacher - the moment(s) I said to myself, I'm just going through the motions here?"

Knowing Standards


              It seems that I could change or improve on a few things but for now I will stick with standards. In cosmetology we have the Georgia Performance Standards and State Board of Cosmetology Standard. Then there is Reading across the Curriculum, Science and Math. Teachers will talk about their standards and not have to think about it. Here I still have to look them up to talk about them.

                Another thing is, which standards do I really focus on? The Department of Education gives us the GPS but they really do not match up with Georgia State Board of Cosmetology standards. The Georgia State Board of Cosmetology is really what we need to be focused on for the students to reach their final goal, their Master Cosmetology License. But, if I do not use DOE’s then…..

I agree with you Michelle. In HSTE we have standards from the DOE and in our 3rd year we have standards from the State Board for Nursing Assistants. It's confusing and can be overwhelming.

I feel the same way. Sometimes I feel like it is the first day at a new job and I have no idea what I am doing. I get easily embarrassed in a crowd of other teachers because they know all the abbreviations for all the different types of groups, organizations, clubs or even subjects. I usually have to whisper to someone next to me and ask them what does those initials stand for.
