So why did I pick that for a title? Well see, the day our school becomes a 1 laptop per child school, I am going to take all my journal entries and compose a book and give it the title: "When an Immigrant Hires a Native". The journal entries chronicle my journey from the day I was hired, the hours I have spent preparing presentations or reading research, to roll-out.
I had access to a computer since before I started Kindergarten- both at home and at school. I went through a progressive district that valued technology and then was hired by a principal who also valued technology.
Most importantly, I have to think about the future and if we continued doing the same things we will continue getting the same results. I did not enter teaching to produce the same results- I entered teaching to give students better opportunities than I was given.
