I am working on my site and found some drafts that I never published. I was hoping it would publish with the draft date, but it didn’t. It was worthy of publishing, so here it is from December 18, 2008.
I was listening to David Warlick’s podcast from 12/13 and he talked about the teacher as a master learner. That makes me think about the journey that I am on now pursuing National Board Certification. It is funny. I can vividly remember my first or second year of teaching, there was an announcement about pursuing certification, and I thought, “Are they CRAZY??!!! Who would want to do that???” And here I am in the throws of it. And I do think, “Am I CRAZY???”
