The Teacher Organizer is grounded in a couple of persistent thoughts that have been constant companions for me these past few years. Teaching is changing is profound ways... to say the least. Publicized test scores, government mandates, rising academic standards, new evaluation procedures, budget cuts, (etc!) do their part in making any teaching assignment hard to navigate and pressurized (and that's putting it mildly). In light of all the change, little is being done to assist in the support, growth and development of teachers. Few resources help us keep our heads clear and our hearts engaged in the profession to which most of us felt "called".
|Just for fun... Insert "Teaching" in place of "Second Grade"!|
The Teacher Organizer is preparing to provide many of the above listed components for teachers, but the last two items are things that are best addressed by the input of many. Your thoughts, and insights are welcomed and encouraged on all the topics that will be presented and discussed on this site. Through the comments section under each post (titled: Share Your Thoughts Here) on The Teacher Organizer and via The Teacher Organizer on Facebook there is opportunity to join the conversation.
And here is the invitation to you... Join the conversation, ask questions, share your experiences and insights. We will all benefit from what you have to share!
