I am also working on getting us several episodes ahead and getting the TikTok rolling with some new content.Continue reading “News and Themes”

New Year, New Us?
So, we are back. We think. It’s been a little crazy lately, but we are back to recording and hopefully back to posting. Did anyone else feel like fall 2021 was actually crazier/harder than fall 2020? We sure did. Amidst all the chaos, things were accomplished, but it sure did feel like they were harderContinue reading “New Year, New Us?”
Live from TETC2021 with a Challenge!
Okay, so maybe I’m not really going to go live on video, but I’m is at the Tennessee Educational Technology Conference right now and I thought I would make a post since it has been a while since I’ve posted. It hasn’t been for a lack of having things to say, it’s been from aContinue reading “Live from TETC2021 with a Challenge!”
It is estimated that the average classroom teacher makes over 1500 decisions per day in the classroom that are impactful. You know these decisions; they are the ones that go beyond should we go left or right out of the classroom to head to the cafeteria and what color post it should I use forContinue reading “Pursuing Perfection”
Moving beyond perceived limits
If you are a regular listener to our podcast, you may have noticed that David and I have very different personalities. Our differences were actually the inspiration behind our logo. David is much more analytical and structured (although people that have dealt with me on calendar issues might disagree) and I am more the freeContinue reading “Moving beyond perceived limits”
Taking the Right Turn…
An interesting thing has happened in one of my classes this semester. We have, as happens every semester, had a few days where the discussion “rook a right turn.” What I mean by that is that we went down the rabbit hole, but it was still related to what were doing in class and learningContinue reading “Taking the Right Turn…”
What do you want to learn?
So, part of the Perfect Chaos that is our family includes huge disagreements about what makes a good movie. David and I definitely don’t agree on movies most of the time. A few days ago, David turned on a movie that I definitely don’t think of as quality cinema. I’m pretty sure it didn’t winContinue reading “What do you want to learn?”
I love a fresh start. It’s one of the reasons why I like New Year’s. It isn’t a resolution thing, I just like starting over. That has been evident throughout my life as I struggled to find the career that I wanted. It is also evident in the fact that I still can’t sleep theContinue reading “Starting Over”
Starting the Spring Semester
I shared something on my facebook page earlier this evening, and I wanted to expound upon it a little bit in this space today. A friend shared the original post which was originally written by his dissertation chair, Dr. Colin McKenzie, Associate Director of Bands at the University of Southern Mississippi. Below is Dr. Mackenzie’sContinue reading “Starting the Spring Semester”
It’s not a Dog and Pony Show, or is it?
Have you ever felt like you were just up there doing the dog and pony show to entertain the students in your class or the administrator that was evaluating you? Can I just tell you how much I absolutely hate that feeling? I went into teaching with the desire to share knowledge, and I canContinue reading “It’s not a Dog and Pony Show, or is it?”
