What if my college is breaking me? What if the only way to get better is to get out, when I thought I needed to get better before I could get out…
When I joined I was an outstanding teacher in a happy department. Now neither is true.
I had a flashback to how it was in our meeting tonight, feelings that were reflected by others.
I went on to TMSoton, it was great. I remember back to that first one, the manic day of filling goodie bags and things coming together. A stressful day, but a great culmination of effort.
TMSoton reminded me of the teacher I want to be, the one I used to be. How can you go from being an innovator to a Luddite? I want to get that back.
There are plans I hope I can put in place.
Things that might make a real change, be a real challenge, make a real difference – to me and my students.
