Day 15 of 30 Day Blog Post:
Ok PLN, what do you do when you extend an invitation and no one responds? Today I took part in a building level presentation. I shared my journey as an innovative educator for the last year, and I invited the staff to join me. No responses as of yet. I might be writing this blog premature, and people will come out of the woodwork eventually. I am being optimistic.
When does the role of a teacher trying to help a district move forward become the role of the administrator to make it happen? I am an aspiring administrator. I have applied for over 12 positions this Spring. I have interviewed, and I get the common response, " Not enough experience." What does that mean? Experience not moving people forward, and continuing the status quo?
I am tired of trying to help people see their potential, and being vilified because I am a cohort, and not their superior making it happen. When will the world of education from top down make a difference? Teachers hold their students accountable daily, why don't school boards hold administrators accountable, and administrators hold their teachers accountable? In my opinion, this is why education does not move forward.
