Where to begin the story?
Mr. Rice discusses in his blog post how he can he connect more with his colleagues. He states how he is having trouble sharing his ideas with fellow teachers and catching them up to speed. He mentions about Sir Ken Robinson and possibly sharing his videos with faculty.
I told Mr.Rice that his first step should be to share his blog with his colleagues and see how that turns out. I shared with Mr. Rice a link Sir Ken Robinson's video that I had watched for EDM 310. I mentioned that Sir Ken Robinson gives great advice and that Mr.Rice should considering sharing his with his colleagues.
Mr. Rice discusses in his blog post on how administrators are setting the bar low, instead of setting the bar high at his school. He states that when he was evaluated by administrators, they didn’t have a great deal of positive or negative feedback that Mr. Rice was hoping for. He says that he is a perfectionist and would be the first to score his self harshly.
I told Mr. Rice that I was stunned that administrators at his school would want to set the bar low. As a future educator, you would think that the bar would be set high for students, teachers, and administrators. I thanked Mr. Rice for sharing his blog post!
