Recently, I had a fantastic opportunity to work with students for a full week on the idea of “Digital Leadership” and how to use technology to make a positive impact on their world and the world of others. It was amazingly well-received although I was extremely nervous about the process. Typically, I work with adults and knowing that I would work with K-12 students for a week, I had the typical “First Day of School” jitters that many, if not most, teachers have no matter how long they have been teaching. Going out of my way to connect with students before I presented, make conversation, and just get to know them a bit before I started really eased my mind, and honestly, it made them more comfortable with me speaking to them. It was a great reminder that relationships are often the beginning and end of good teaching.
