“Change is good…..you go first.”
-Anderson & Feltenstein (2009)
As we embark on learning how to integrate and use new tools in our classrooms, whether it’s iPads or a Promethean Board, we must remember that effective school change depends on what teachers do and think. Since teachers are the ones with the greatest impact on student learning, we must work together and learn together!

Please take 3 minutes to watch this great clip on the topic of change.
Accepting that we will always be faced with numerous inconsequential changes as well as a few potentially significant changes is necessary for our sanity. Recognizing how to ignore the former & learning to embrace the latter is yet another way we Teach with Passion each day at Kennedy School.
