Question of the Week November 3:
Think about your teaching this past week and then answer the following question: "What was the event that most took me by surprise - an event where I saw or did something that shook me up, caught me off guard, gave me a jolt, or made me unexpectedly happy?"
Week of November 3rd, that is a tough one because I got most of my surprises my first year of teaching. And those surprises were based on what I thought education was and what education truly is. I also believe that my definition of education will change depending on the following; Administration; Parents; the Student; and the actual placement of that student. I guess is what continues to surprise me is that sometimes when you plan a lesson and its awesome on paper. Then you put that lesson into action it just does not go to plan. Then other time it goes exactly as planned and you and the student end up on the “Cloud Atlas.” In short I have a lot of this moments but it hard to point just one for the week.
