A reflection from one of my students
Yesterday ended our four week summer institute at the Connecticut Writing Project~Fairfield. The teachers each presented their final reflections and Sean, a teacher in Bridgeport schools, brought his love for technology by posting this video essay of what he learned (as a dramatic guy with pride in everything he is as an educator).
All of the reflections were powerful and magical. I feel enriched from my short time learning from them and sharing the baton with Faye Gage who has directed the project for the last twenty-six years. I told her I have bigger feet than her, but I have tremendous shoes to fill.
This is to my first cohort and all they accomplished this summer. The bonding is something I'll never forget.
