Teacher

One of my teachers, Mrs. Anne Stewart, has created two new excellent programs in our school this past school year: an art club and an elementary running club which is an inspiration and an excellent opportunity for many of our kids.

This particular staff member was assigned some new teaching duties this past year and I'm not so sure that she would have chosen those for herself. She is obviously a person with inspirational professionalism. Besides the two new extra-curricular programs, she has taken on a love for one of her newest teaching assignmnets. One of my greatest enjoyments from this past year has involved listening to her. She is always bragging about her kids and what they have accomplished. When she is not doing that, she is spending much of her time thinking about methods on improving their performances. She collaborates and she is willing to learn as much as possible from other professionals.

I wish we all, including myself, could so quickly and easily adapt and grow into a new situation with such dedication and professionalism!

Hi Karsten. I have written a tremendous amount about constructivism and I have several references achived on my blog. I am in meetings today and tomorrow, but I will keep in touch so we can continue to discourse.
