Slice of Life Day 21~ New Challenges, New Opportunities
As we met today to discuss the details of the project I found myself sitting in Ramseyer Hall at Ohio State University and already I knew I was being changed. I did not attend Ohio State University, but I have always respected the university and stand proud that I am an Ohio State Buckeye by birth!
Sitting in Ramseyer Hall listening to dedicated teachers (teachers who agreed to meet on a beautiful Saturday) share their teaching stories, asking questions and digging deeper in a desire to better understand the art of teaching, I was feeling energized. Each question led to another, none of them easily answered, none of them with one simple answer. We were asking the questions teachers grapple with daily, the questions that drive our decisions and set the climate of our classrooms.
So, today I dipped my toes in the water of my newest, and definitely scariest, challenge of my professional learning to date. The water was warm, supportive and inviting, I am looking forward to the big dive!
