A new year = renewed possibility

Here in Philadelphia we begin the 2009-10 session with bated breath because of challenging changes in the School District's policy for teachers. And we have no contract. For me, this means I must focus even more than usual on the classroom so that I don't feel powerless and forget why I am a teacher. I'm renewing my commitment to real-world learning and its important focus on student voices. As a first step, I am redesigning the Tapped-In classes I used last year. And again, I invite my Principal to check out and test drive the arrangements.
