Hurricanes’ Exploring Learning from Reading Edge, Bobble Heads, Speech & Debate and our youngest Hurricane “Baby Casiano” is right in the middle of Home Economics’ cooking activities : ) Learning is taking place at SSMS!
We are often leery of changing routine or changing what we know works, whether it be in our professional or personal lives. As we look at the new assessments and the expectations of our students, we realize that the rigor and student tasks are higher. We must find innovative ways to meet the needs of our students and take them to the next level. I saw this on Ms. Firios’ board today during walk-throughs, “Being Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable” this quote really hit me. This sums up the learning process and the risks we and ask our students take daily. It means that we must continue to learn new things and push ourselves to think about doing things better and more efficiently than we currently are doing them. Sometimes this means switching or experimenting with a new instructional tool; sometimes it means using your existing toolbox more effectively; sometimes it means listening to educators with less experience in order to learn new trends. And always it means we never stay the same and we are always challenging the status quo. This is uncomfortable… but it is necessary.In the words of Ashton Kutcher: ” I’m continually trying to make choices that put me against my own comfort zone. As long as you’re uncomfortable, it means you’re growing.”
