Back to the Classroom

I am going back to the classroom this year. When the district cut my job as an instructional technology coach because of budget shortfalls, I made the decision to go back to the classroom. That decision was fueled by the fact that I have been out of the classroom for five years. I have always believed that instructional coaches or anyone telling a teacher what to do in their classroom is no longer credible after the five year mark. Think about it, anything that I tell a teacher now would be based on my theory of what I think might what. Those theories have not been vetted on the clients which are the students. 

I am excited to return to a fourth grade classroom this year. My blog will chronicle my return to teaching and my journey for recertification as a national board certified teacher.
