Google Teacher Academy for Administrators
It happened. I was accepted to participate in the Google Teacher Academy for Administrators. So what exactly does this mean? It means that in March I will be traveling to San Antonio, TX along with 49 other administrators from around the country to participate in an intensive workshop that is "designed to create a strong professional learning community of administrators who support each other over the course of a year, so if you are not local, you must be willing to be resourceful with all technologies to facilitate communication and collaboration with your fellow Google Certified Teachers."
I am very excited about this opportunity and I am already amazed by how quickly this group of admins has started to network using Twitter. By comparison, I am coming from a very small school, a JK-12 private school, but I suspect most of our issues, concerns, gripes, and observations are similar with respects to teaching, learning, personnel, and the role of curriculum.
With that, let the sharing and learning begin!
