040: After the Last Bell: 4 Steps Teachers Forget to Take

Welcome to Episode 40 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode, I talk about 4 steps that teachers often forget to take after the last bell rings.  These steps are so crucial to include while you plan if you want to enjoy your well deserved summer break even more!

Teachers are planners.  Whether you teach in the classroom full time or you lead others in their educational careers, the fact is that in order to be successful and impactful in this profession, or even in life, you must have a plan.

Once the last bell rings, we often become filled with emotions and excitement.  Many times we already begin laying out our plans for the summer or we begin to anticipate the great things we plan to accomplish.  This is natural, and really is a great thing to do, but don’t forget to take these simple four simple steps as well.

STEP ONE: Just breathe and take a moment to relax, reflect, and rest

STEP TWO: Plan in “Me Moments” and schedule in a little time for YOU weekly.

STEP THREE: “Snub the Screen’ and set aside 30 mins to an hour to disconnect your devices and reconnect to what matters most

STEP FOUR: Make a difference and be intentional to help someone else’s day shine a little brighter each week.

036: Technology is a Teacher’s Silverware

Welcome to Episode 36 of the Teachonomy Talks podcast. In this episode I talk about how technology is a teacher’s silverware, how it must be viewed as a tool to enhance learning, and how a good teacher leading the way is the most important factor in it all.

Technology is a teacher’s silverware. Our objectives, our lessons and our pedagogy, make up the meal that the feast we prepare for our students is based upon. It is the ‘silverware’ that serves as a tool to help us to enhance the experience overall.

Technology will…

  1. Enhance learning by differentiating to the needs of your students.
  2. Encourage individual learning and growth in a way that would be impossible otherwise
  3. Reach the diversity of learning styles that our students possess, and help  you meet them where they are.
  4. It can demonstrate and encourage innovation and help students push limits that they think are impossible to overcome.
  5. It can give immediate feedback on growth, and provide confidence to those who need it most.

But just like silverware, it is useless without YOU.
