Question of the Week October 6:
In reading through last week's posts it seems that many of us are a bit overwhelmed and I wonder if we are putting too much pressure on ourselves. Let's take some time to reflect on the following quote from Beverly Sills and then post about what it means to you as a CTE teacher, "You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don't try.
This quote says and mean a lot to me. As a CTE teacher and still new to the game, I become disappointed if I fail to meet the Data requirements that the school instructional coaches are asking for. It becomes overwhelming when I try to use my planning period to meet all the tasks that is requested. If I do not try and not present anything... I am doomed. In my opinion you damned if you do and damned if you don't. If I try and it is not correct, I am instructed to go and do this and do that and it still does not make any sense but hey i do my best and say okay and keep it moving.
