Once in every 17 years … Is the time now? Is there a paradigm shift in caring? How bad is it behind the current? How do we scale teachers with wisdom that are put out to pasture? How can we build wars that bring joy? Questions that are inspired on Sunday Mornings.
Answers that inspire me to keep on my pathway of public education policy. So what did I do? I signed up to be selected to be on the Texas SBOE TEKS K-8 Technology Application review work group. Why I am asked? Answer, because I can. I am the only person in the state of Texas that has the experience and history. I tried to integrate CS / CT in 2010 as a member of the TA TEKS writing team, but alas my ideas were not used. That was when my grandson was in first grade in SBISD. I now have future sixth and kindergarten grandchildren and have to step up and do my part.
Time for some data visualization … “Inventors are always testing” – Innovation Nation. It is not testing in schools that needs to go away, it is the way students are tested. Take flight with a sine wave. Mission Unstoppable … We can solve it together!!! As together is better!!!! We need more counselors and librarians who can build teams to solve for tomorrow. What does it take to be part of the party? Solution – the universal language of food. Be an architect for the future. Be a builder of Housing for All. Create a curiosity driven research and collaboration system of education for our future. Oh, the places we will go with lessons learned.
