Listening: This morning I had the privilege of listening to one of my former college students defend her dissertation. I loved listening to her passion and her ideas. I loved how the listening made me think and ask questions. As one of her committee members, I have loved watching her thinking evolve as she did her research. It was a cerebral morning listening, growing, and evolving.
Loving: I am loving this Florida spring weather. Last year it became too hot too soon. One year, we didn't have to turn the air on until June. Last year, we almost never turned it off. We have a had a blissful spring with sunny days and cool nights and low humidity. I am loving that the air is still off.
Thinking: I am thinking about our destination digital for next year. Wondering about "personalized learning" and personalizing learning. Wondering about Genius Projects, integrating the tech most purposefully for learning and what attitude shifts it will require both teachers, students and parents to take.
Needing: I am needing this Achilles tendinitis to go away. Not in a way that it morphs into something worse, but just a reduction in the pain. Glad to have a foam rolling session and a new stretch and new shoes and socks under the belt, but
I am needing patience in this healing process.
