I’ve been feeling a bit “ick” in my skin lately.
And I’m solely to blame.
I’m questioning my every move.
What’s the value of home learning ?
How do I develop relationships with my students ?
How “should” my classroom run?
Who should be making decisions? …
I think you get the idea.
I needed to bounce my thoughts around. I needed to hear myself articulate what was in my head. But I needed someone to listen.
So, I told Edna that I didn’t need answers. I needed her to listen.
And she did. She guided me. I talked. A lot. She listened. A lot.
I still don’t have (some) answers. But my thoughts had a “bouncing board”.
Her thoughts bounced back a little later. They arrived in an email entitled “One of these?”. It simply had this link.
Who do you have to bounce ideas around with ?
Who doesn’t provide you with the answers ?
