Apps in Education

It seems that there is an app for everything.  From communicating with students and parents, to apps that help you easily grade exams and quizzes.  I believe that all educators could benefit from collaborating on best practices with educational technology, which is why I am working on developing a website called AppsEducator.com.

I am looking for bloggers who have used apps in the classroom or in some aspect of education.  The more we share, the more we help each other to…

Implementing Mindfulness in Schools: Reflections From a Principal

Practitioners and researchers offer that practicing mindfulness leads to an increased ability to focus and concentrate, greater self-awareness, reduced stress, increased empathy, and improved impulse control. My personal experience with mindfulness over the past eight years affirms these claims. I have come to recognize that my mindfulness practice has helped me to more fully engage in conversations and truly listen to others, better understand the emotional state and needs of those I am…

Leaders and Moral Courage

The educator's dilemma arises within the domain of what's good enough. An "acceptable" number of students graduate, and an "acceptable" number of students go on to college or join the work force.  Where did that "acceptable" number come from and whose hand moves it when we glance away? We lead schools, institutions that exist at the core of our society; they are expected to both keep pace with change and hold true to tradition. We choose often between two right options, trying to find…

Can You Say What You Mean Without Hurting Someone?

The media has exposes us to less than polite exchanges when people are disagreeing. In fact, the term "politically correct" has become a bad word for those who feel sided lined as our culture has moved away from name calling. This year's presidential race is causing us to confront the issues again as it raises the ugly head of name calling again.  Will those using the freedom of speech on a political stage influence our efforts to model and teach how to say what you think and feel…

Supervisors Carry the Dual Purposes of Evaluation

Has all the supervision and rating made a difference in teacher performance and student achievement?  Now the suggested standards for those supervising the principals will guide the task of central office leaders.  Will that improve the principals' evaluation process or improve their performance?  Will it lead to another accountability level, which is very important, certainly, or will it lead to a coaching system rooted in personal and professional growth and…

K-12 education is much too important to leave to the experts

 More and more, my impression is that K-12 education is rigged to be bad. I sum this up by saying: the fix is in.

I have a new piece on American Thinker titled: Only you can prevent bad public schools.

 This perspective grew out of my sense that the Education Establishment, left to itself, will never…
