5 posts that spoke the loudest in March 

In keeping with my five of the best theme here are the five posts that I feel spoke loudest this March.

You don’t get anything unless you ask for it…

It can be easy to be the person who waits in the corner, complaining about missed opportunities and unfair decisions.

But the reality is only you can make you wait.

Nobody else can.

You need to decide what you want and what you’re willing to give up to get it, and then you’ve got to make peace with that.

Or you need to be okay with waiting on the sidelines in the hope of getting the call up.”

Why do some teachers hide away

Teaching is a deeply personal activity and one that requires huge amounts of emotional investment if you are doing the job right.  Putting yourself out there opens yourself up to the risk that someone might not like what you are doing requires strength.”

Making inferences 

The Probe was completely out of context. Standardized to ensure comparisons between children and used year on year. Yet if I hadn’t been watching other data, I would never thought of changing how to approach reading with this child.

I think my assessment maybe wrong.

Taking a sick day shouldn’t be viewed as some kind of failure.

Why is it that teachers will send sick kids home and lecture colleagues about the dangers of teaching while ill but when it comes to taking care of themselves?

Your applicants are googling you

The days of applying for jobs and waiting for answer aren’t going to be reality my students will face when they enter the workforce in a decade. They will need to create their own opportunities and use their networks to stand out from the pack.

When it comes time for my students to find their career path, I hope they understand that digital footprints to help them find their way can be found on both sides of hiring street.
