The end of the year is nearly upon us and again the agony starts. I was declared redundant, and again, I’m in the wrong spot at the wrong time. I might not end up getting anything.
This gives me the opportunity to change directions though. Armed with the tools of PLP, I feel confident I can do much better than I have in the intermediate grades. Having seen so many people succeed and do exciting things with tech and kids. Plus I’ll have some people resources to turn to.
I would really like the opportunity to create a literacy based, technology aided, integrated arts program for grades seven and \ or eight. I think that differentiation is going to be the key to individual success, but I know I need an over-arcing project or theme.
|I have been told that I look and act very similar to Jack Black in School of Rock, so creating, promoting and marketing student created music might be a bit to cliche.
I could go deeper and make it for a cause. Kools’ Cancer Killers, a band that puts on concerts to raise money for cancer research.
I think most importantly I need to get into things. I need to use the great ideas that I’ve amassed in my integrated arts AQ and the PLP event. I do feel like I’ll be missing out on great opportunities in Secondary, but this is something I can do now, and not wait to see if I get screwed over again. I’m taking back control, I’m going to do the best that I can, and strive for awesomeness. Skadoosh as it were.
