Post 15 on the 30-Day Blogging Challenge: Name 5 strengths you have as an educator.
I’m halfway there!
I’ve come up with these 5 terms to describe myself. I wonder if colleagues or friends would think otherwise.
Passionate: I genuinely enjoy what I do and am passionate about education, technology, and the integration of the two.
Life-long learner: I love to learn. I am thankful for my PLN which helps me grow, see things from different perspectives, and learn more every day.
Hard-working: Because I like what I do, I find it easier to immerse myself in it. Time truly does fly! I imagine some in our schools wonder what I do all day as I used to with my predecessor. No one works harder than a classroom teacher; I’ll be the first to say that. But that doesn’t mean I don’t work hard. I do.
Leader: Seven years ago I turned in my professional development plan for the next 7 years. (It’s time for my license renewal!) One goal was to take on more of a leadership role with technology. Needless to say, that happened. I find myself taking on more leadership opportunities and welcome the chance to work with and lead others.
Fun: I had to lighten it up a bit! I am more fun than some realize, though my children would beg to differ. It’s all about relationships, right? I spend a lot of time trying to build relationships. I wish others would do the same with me. They might like what they find.
