This time of year, we could all use a good smile:
Six Phases of Teaching from Mr. Duez on Vimeo.
This is a video I put together that is adapted from an email that made the rounds in the past few years. It is a comic look at the profession of teaching.
I'll use the 6 Phases as an "ice breaker" next week during our History Path training through AVID. I'll be doing the staff development with a couple of my colleagues. It is always great to give back and share some of the great things I've gotten to see. I am really looking forward to it.
Then on Thursday night next week, I'll be jumping on a plane and heading to San Diego to get training on how to teach the summer institute for AVID in History. I am really looking forward to this. It will be a great break from the routine and will be a wonderful opportunity to meet lots of new people. It is always so invigorating to be around the very best teachers. AVID has given me loads of opportunity. This is just another great one.
