Research

As part of the cohort for my school district I had to do some research on different educational ideas this month. I LOVE research. If I could research all day, using my hilighter and cross referencing articles and data that shows student achievement and then figure out a way to implement those strategies on my campus, I would have soooooo much fun.
But, alas, I cannot.
There just aren’t enough hours in the day. 🙂
I’ve always loved research. I don’t know why but I do.
In my research I learned about different learning styles and took a quiz that told me so much about myself and my learning style and my teaching style. I feel sorry for the kids in my classes who need step by step instructions and LOTS of hand holding. Usually by now, they’ve grown accustomed to my dive in and do approach, but the first six weeks is a little shaky for those kids. I need to restructure my lessons to hit all learning styles.

The Super Bowl was awesome. We missed the first 22 seconds of the game. 😦
Prince and the commercials were AWESOME. My favorite was the Fed Ex moon commercial. I was crying from laughing so hard.
