Yes, I also appreciate your perspective, Whitney.
Sandra Ovalles

What a great example for your students.
Anthony Sanders
27:48
In an effort to help our 2019-2020 graduates leave high school, having faced nearly a semester at home, the MCPS "lowered the bar" significantly for graduation. This lowering of the bar continues and it's a difficult grading policy to reconcile with teaching students what they need to know.

Thank you Whitney for voicing all of those "Current Event" concerns because they do impact ALL of US and our students sense what is taking place. However, like us they do have a hard time processing and dealing with all of it. So we struggle and move forward together.
Maria Lourdes Nocedal-Geaga
28:55
Agreed. Pause & reflect are best practices.
Sandra Ovalles
29:00
Correct!
Maria Barrera
29:04
Agree!
Susan Knighton
29:09
YES! Thank you Phil! Teaching music this year was difficult and I felt like I was so behind with my students.
Crystal Bere
29:18
Exactly right, Phil Wilson! We didn't reflect about what was working with cleaning etc
Jennifer Palo
29:29
I agree @whitney - Engaging in silence is so powerful!
Marcia West
29:29
So true. The rules seemed to change monthly as reports were shared. Reflection would have minimized the frustration felt by many of us at that time.
Robin Becton
29:30
I'm glad to hear that I wasn't the only one thinking that way..why are the rules changing and how do we know this is really over?
Artis Wheatley

Heather Woolson

100%
Donna McDaniel
29:59
Agree! I think we need to STOP waiting for things to "get back to normal." We need a NEW MIND SET. We need to see where we are and discuss how to move forward for the betterment of students, parents, and ourselves.
Kylie Chamble
30:06
so true! absolutely agree
Michelle Hostetler
30:15
Advocate continually...so true!
Suzanne Martinez

What is normal these days?
Theresa Gaetjens
30:31
I never thought about it this way, but YES! The new normal -- what does this mean to us as a profession?
Susan Knighton
30:36
My biggest take away from last year is that I really got to connect with my band kids again. No matter what they sounded like, that was so wonderful!

Angela Alston
31:32
Rue, your camera is not on.
Angela Cappucci
31:33
Yes, we need to have a “waiting time’ instead of being impulsive about responding to what is being going on in the world.
Hina Naseem
31:33
Reflection and respectful discourse should be normalized in the classroom for students to take as part of their toolkit for their futures
Theresa Gaetjens
31:49
I agree, Hina

31:54
A agree
Angela Alston

Good Morning! Angela, NBCT, Second Grade, Los Angeles
Jonathan Kamen
32:15
Last year, one of the most important activities I needed to do for my students is validate their struggle to learn and get back to the routine of working in a classroom after being off for a year.
Christina Gaura
32:26
Yes, Phil. The whole mask or no mask thing. I wore the mask because of immune suppressive therapy but was quadruple vaccinated. My heart was full when one of my very challenged students eloquently told our RTI group that she chooses to wear the mask for her family because so and so and so and so have asthma and she does too and she can tolerate it so chooses the mask.

@Hina good point
Anthony Sanders
33:21
For SEL, I have incorporated the "Mood Meter" into my daily classwork. The Yale Mood Meter is a great way for students to take a moment to reflect on their feelings. I've made it an anonymous submission, then I build word clouds to show students the general mood of the class.
Kathleen Chianese
33:34
Yes, Rue, I teach K-5 students in art and there was a lot of listening and responding to kids age 5 - 11. with their concerns and thoughts.
Heather Woolson
33:53
Love that Anthony!
Yolanda Serrato-Jonian
33:54
Yes, it’s important to accept that others have their own perspective(s).
diane Newell
33:59
No one is behind! Not kids or adults. That's thinking in the past. We are where we are and we continue to move forward. Reflection takes us to a new level, different level of understanding of our culture, lifestyles and guidance for our future.
Christina Gaura
34:02
Yes, Kathleen. So much listening.
Angella
34:02
Calming corners were also helpful with the SEL
Javier Gamez
34:28
what are specific NCBT steps, actions and recommendations for our teachers to deal with and thrive under the circumstances just mentioned?
Courtney Cation
34:51
yes more SEL
Consuelo Johnson
35:09
When students are directly affected, sometimes our pause includes just listening, really listening to the students, what they are saying as well as what they are not saying.
Michelle Hostetler
35:11
@anthony thank you for sharing about Mood Meter App!
Christina Gaura
35:19
I chose to slow down and focus on my students as persons.
Joseph German

Because things are happening so quickly, we need to be humble about what we know & next steps
Michelle Crumm
36:01
I had to do more social emotional teaching then ever before. Education is different now

I was a clinical social worker for 20+ years prior to becoming a teacher. In my 3 years of teaching (entering my 4th), it feels a lot more like social work than I expected.

Shaun Marusek

sub shortage has canceled many important PD opportunities.
SUZANNE KUJAWA
36:38
My district states we are not allowed to share our views in our school pages or with our students. Students can share their side, but we must be neutral in our views to avoid offending any student.
Thomas White
36:39
I can only teach at one speed.
Marka Carson
36:44
We need a revamp- if not now then when?
Cindy Black

We need more support from administration. I feel a lot have forgotten what it is like in the classroom.
Shaun Marusek
36:48
Changing rules
Tina Weeks
36:48
I teach ECSE (blended) in VA. Most of this year I taught SEL as half of my students lives have been within the COVID years. These kiddos do not know how to interact with their peers. This year was a challenge in helping them to learn how to do so.
Andrea Van Eaton
36:51
Crisis mode. Standards are inadequate. Support, financial, legislative, and community, is lacking. The students, however, need us more now than ever.
Elizabeth Aguilar
36:51
Continue to teach children that being "educated" about the events happening around us is important.
Sheila Jones
36:51
I think in our county, the Stake Holders are not looking at the needs of all students and how this is affecting teachers.
Maria Barrera
36:53
Education needs more care and support!
Emma Alvarez
36:58
we need to keep good teachers and give new teacher an incentive to stay

Shaun Marusek
37:08

Courtney Parker
37:18
It seems that there is a lack of trust in teachers and our commitment to due what is best for students. We are professionals and are not always treated as such.
Christin Flynn
37:18
North Carolina is a state that does not take teacher opinions into account on a lot.
Kiarica Smith
37:19
My selfcare practice has increased due to having to give more of myself in the classroom.
Jessica Patrick
37:37
Standards keep getting more difficult for students. They are not mentally developed for some of the standards expected of them. They do not get enough breaks throughout the day. We should not have to teach a test! Also, students need more accountability.
Melody Shafer
37:40
Students need relational support for their mental health and well-being.
Judith Grey
37:41

Civics needs to be revisited: rights with responsibilities as a theme
Tessia Carter
38:20
Stressful- Many resistant to changes needed to meet sense of urgency around SEL for adults and students to create a better culture and climate as we recover and move towards a new and better normal.
Christina Gaura
38:27
I have chosen to reflect on what my students need most at this time and keep the focus on them at all times.
Courtney Cation

Robin Myers
38:33
I think we are under a microscope but finally have support monetarily and parents are more engaged because they had to be during Covid.
Carrie Carrie Morales
38:38
Covid helped to make academics bigger. Teachers had too much on our plate the last two years and it always felt overwhelming.
Judith Grey

Good morning, Dr. Judith Grey- Miami, Florida
Keitha Burnett
39:18
Portfolios are good for the problem that you are talking about.
Jessica Patrick
39:32
Yes, the past year was very overwhelming.
Emma Alvarez
39:36
I learned that I am very emotional invested in my students even when I try to be partial. I teach children with learning differences and emotional difficulties
Christina Gaura
39:44
Yes, listening. Students need to be heard!
Althea Brown
39:46
Be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath

Listen more, talk less

Listening to learn builds empathy for others :)
Maria Barrera
40:15
I agree, Listening is key!
Cindy Black
40:15
Great perspective!
Donna McDaniel
40:18
I think we need a "Cultural" month - where ALL the various cultures and their impact in our world and country (America) is what is highlighted. Not just one or two cultures, but ALL.
torri Bryant
40:23
My phone does the same thing, lol
Kim Wood
40:25
Absolutley!
Kathleen Chianese
40:26
Standardized testing has become the "all eggs in this basket" determiner. Students are so much more than this! One day and one
Emma Alvarez
40:26
But we have to listen to the emotions besides listening to the words
BARBARA M LEBLANC
40:26
Does anyone know why the test component is only available from spring to early June?
Pamela Hamilton
40:26
Dr. Wilson, such a wise perspective
Kristen Brummel
40:35

I celebrated everything special going on in the world. Black history month, Mexican independence, anything else I would hear or learn about, I would spend time to create a powerpoint explaining the specail day or month. Definitely a learning moment for me when it's something new.

@ Angela, that must have been a lot to unpack. I probably would have asked her why should she not celebrate it.

Sometimes the best lesson in and for a class is to let the students listen to each other and really see how similar they are to each other.

Hi 👋 I am traveling with my husband for my summer break across the country 🚛 It’s great self-care! Currently we are in a bad rainstorm. Prayerfully I will not lose my connection. Especially at the end and miss the link for attending live and the survey. Just in case I am Monique Coles email is MoniqueMColes@gmail.com. Yes I have learned much about reflection and will reflect on this webinar upon returning to school. I would recommend and actually did recommend that another colleague register for the remaining two days. Thank you!

@Shelly, I also have done this, but I am not disciplined enough to do it every day! My goal this year is daily journaling

I took an on additional job, teaching English to Adults, and it was very eye opening teaching students from the beginning levels - intermediate levels of their English proficiency. I had to be very reflective because even though I teach kids with all the confidence in the world, I initially felt very insecure teaching adults (especially when some are very verbal comparing you to their other instructors! Now it's been two years, I love every minute of it. :)
Jonathan Kamen
53:36
That is a very good practice Shelly. This past year I had 16 different classes and color coded each class with my journal writing since each class has a different makeup and needs.

I just found this online. I love this description. Aloha (/əˈloʊhɑː/ ə-LOH-hah, Hawaiian: [əˈlohə]) is the Hawaiian word for love, affection, peace, compassion and mercy, that is commonly used as a simple greeting but has a deeper cultural and spiritual significance to native Hawaiians, for whom the term is used to define a force that holds together existence.

Systems ThinkingSystems Thinking starts with the premise that students deepen their thinking and expand their knowledge when they make connections between their learning and the natural and human-made systems around them.When students learn through a Systems Thinking lens, they understand that actions taken in one area effect others—in their classrooms, communities, and world.Systems Thinking fosters learning through which students explore topical, environmental, and global issues holistically, encouraging both increased social responsibility and action.Learn more about Systems Thinking at Wildwood School:

Students today can not handle silence because they never have any. I challenge my students each day at lunch (8th graders) to just sit and reflect on their day in silence for one minute. The students have such a hard time with silence. When I tell them I never turn on any music on my way to school that I just think about my day.
Elizabeth Aguilar
01:02:48
I love that my admin knows me so well that if I'm asked my thoughts at a staff meeting or PLC that I can request more time to reflect about the question or topic and answer at a later time. Silence does not mean I don't know or have the answers, I just need more time to reflect. Extending this to our students and explicitly explaining the importance of silence is a perfect way to model the importance of reflection.
Angel Afolabi
01:02:51
