Teaching is a funny beast. As teachers we strive to connect with our students on so many levels, helping them to connect and achieve more in regards to our subjects. We are driven by standards, objectives, state and national policies on education as well as balancing standarized tests with our own curriculum that we have to trim and fit each year. Now, the Maker Movement, STEM or STEAM, 1:1, Educational Technology, and so many other initiative and strategies are constantly on the tips of our tongues as we are "looking to the future" of education.
But I am a teacher...right now
What can I do?
