For quite some time now, I’ve been following Maureen Devlin’s blog. She’s an educator from Massachussetts (going on 30 years of teaching next year!) who posts often and challenges me to really act on what I value in education. I have had the privilege of actually connecting with her on twitter, and I know she will continue to push me (and so many others) to become a better educator.
I recently discovered her Summer Study site, and though I am not teaching in the state of Massachussetts, the pillars of their Education department still resonate with me. I plan to work my way through the 33 elements of teaching excellence and post my thoughts here.
As Maureen always says…Onward.
