…But technological change is as much emotional and psychological as it is instruction. If you don’t first have the teacher in the mood to learn, you’ll be struggling. So, be careful of labeling the teacher as resistant in the first place and be willing to teach and encourage the teacher wherever he/she is. This is a nice article from Elena Aguilar. Check out part 2 after reading this one.

As a first year technology “coach”, this post had some excellent points that I need to keep in mind!

departuresandarrivals replied to your post: Popping off the question about tattoos what about facial piercings? I am a sophomore in college on my way to being a high school teacher and I have my nose pierced. I really want to keep it but everyone says that I won’t be able to keep it, do…

In the district I work in, it explicitly states that any piercings other than ears and/or any visible tattoos are against the dress code.
