Two AMAZING things happened this week...
1) Yesterday, I was accepted to Vanderbilt’s PhD program! In their Peabody School of Education, I was accepted to the Leadership, Policy, and Organizations program with a concentration in International Education Policy and Management. It’s fully funded with an additional stipend attached, and I have an additional stipend on top of that for a graduate fellowship program to which I was...
Just got back from an amazing recruitment weekend...
I applied to their Leadership, Policy, and Organizations with a concentration in International Education. Apparently, they should let me know within a week. Someone grant me the distraction not to focus on it over the next week so I don’t make myself crazy.

Truth Through Consilience: Misunderstanding... →
gladadam: I think that we have a major failing to understand what exactly technology is and what it means to us as educators, as well as what it means to our society at large.

This leads to two results: 1) I overuse disclaimers. I unconsciously pick through my statements, pull out all possible things that might be misinterpreted, and then address them ad nauseum before even getting to my point. 2) I have...

Alabama State Senator thinks raising teacher pay... →
“It’s a Biblical principle. If you double a teacher’s pay scale, you’ll attract people who aren’t called to teach. “To go in and raise someone’s child for eight hours a day, or many people’s children for eight hours a day, requires a calling. It better be a calling in your life. I know I wouldn’t want to do it, OK? “And these teachers that are called to teach, regardless of the pay scale, they...
