Curriculum and Technology Vlog E019 6.17.19

This was a pretty decent Monday. I felt like I was productive and focused on all the right things. Getting sooooo close with grant and grant submission, can’t wait! I’m a little worried about getting all the PD planning done before people start disappearing with the end of the year.

#findyourpurpose Early College in #VTED

Early college in Vermont is an amazing opportunity for students to access higher learning while in high school. I recently had the chance to hang out with one of these students as he went about his day. I was blown away by the experience, but mostly by his drive and focus.  It was inspiring.

On a technical note my camera fritz out and the footage of the interview is blurry and the perfectionist in me is having a small fit…but I’ll manage.

This week is just flying by with moments of absolute and total productivity…followed by moments of trying to get organized to be productive. It’s a thing. The biggest victory for me was getting the consolidated federal grants in good shape for submission. We’re still waiting on our CIP to be approved before we can formally submit; however, we have all the pieces lined up and in place, so that feels amazing! Outside of that we’re in the end of the year sprint and things are piling up fast. I’m just trying to stay organized and focus on being productive vs. busy.

Friday was just a blur. It was a back to back to back to back meeting day. Sometimes those days feel really good, sometimes they’re really good and exhausting…that was Friday. Pretty happy with the progress on the professional development calendar. This was a concept shared via our regional curriculum directors group and it’s just a way of being more intentional about the professional learning of all the different groups within the learning community.

The days this week have been “surreal” to quote someone else! Each day has been really fast paced, full of meetings, and those familiar feelings of not having enough time. Having said that, they’ve also been really quite productive and based in good stuff. I say that minus the phones not working right…that wasn’t good stuff and it wasn’t productive. Really want to spend more time on the professional development calendar. I think that it’ll help us more evenly think about year long professional development for all stakeholder groups in the learning community…and it’s fun to do.
