As a leader, I've always talked to you about the importance of continuing your learning. This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a conference called "Courageous Leadership Institute". It was an intensive 3 day training. And even though I'm writing this on Saturday evening, I have already learned so much from the sessions on Friday and all day today and look forward to learning even more tomorrow.
I know I am not the perfect leader (no where close). And I know I have much to learn. This weekend has been a firm reminder of the ways in which I need to grow.
But most importantly I look forward to becoming better, for you. For our students. And for our community. If I am not continuing to learn and grow, I am not setting the right example.
I am so excited to be back at work on Monday ready to tackle another week!

I am working on finalizing the benchmark schedule. Monday and Tuesday for sure, students will be testing in the gym, and lunches will need to take place in your room (or outside); except Anthony's class.
I am going to try and make Wednesday as normal a day as possible when planning. I will have the schedule out to you Sunday evening.
This takes place every year and we want to make sure to celebrate with schools from across the world. Please share out tweets all day on Tuesday of the great things happening on campus and include the hashtag #LoveMySchoolDay (and of course continuing to use #TxEdTuesday every Tuesday too)

Kids Deserve It
Here is this week's episode with Joe Dombrowski
As educators, we can't walk into our classrooms every day and ask our students to learn if we aren't continuing our learning ourselves. Whether we're finding new research, reading a new book, attending conferences/trainings, or gaining learning from social media, we have no excuse not to always be learning! What's something new you've learned this week?
If you can share a tweet each day this week of something you're doing in your classroom, you'll get a Sonic Drink on Thursday! Spread the love!
Keep your sense of wonder and humor and don't be afraid to dream and act like a little kid!
