Lights! Camera! Action Research!

Lights: As I was readinbg my text, my highlighter pen went crazy! The whole chapter is important and my text nearly contained a rainbow of colors. I am beginning to see, the lightbulb is blinking, the beacon is shining, and I am seeing what I am as a professional.

Camera: While highlighting/reading, images of what I expect from myself as leader flashed through my brain. The responsipbility a leader carries are multitudes. We represent a district, a campus, students, and teachers. We set the mood for our school. We decide the standards and goals, never settling for second best. We are like potters--we mold our school and teachers with our attitudes, our beliefs, striving for what is best for the students. We are strategic planners.

Action Research: I am excioted about my action research project, but a little overwhelmed. I have few topics of interest, such as discipline and TPRI scores. You know, we as teachers, like to think than we are great problem solvers, but I am learning otherwise. This project will force me to think more critically, more concise, and more broad. I am going outside of just one classroom, but people, just think of the journey and the end result! Our accomplishments will be rewarded!!!

  1. Nice post! Thank you for such great insight. You are so right when you mention that educators want to solve the world's problems, and I agree with you wholeheartedly this research project has most definitely put things into perspective. Much luck with your project!
