Day 16: My Blogging Challenge`

Welcome to day 16 of my blogging challenge. In case you missed what it’s all about, you can read more about it in Day 1.

Today’s Challenge: If you could have one superpower to use in the classroom, what would it be and how would it help?

If I could do anything, it would be to blend in. Even when I taught high school English, I had students say “well, you are just good at this naturally.” Now, when I teach teachers, many think I was given super powers with technology when, the truth is, I wasn’t. I’m just more willing to take chances than most. So, if I could do anything, I’d love to blend in so I don’t appear like an expert. This would help me better connect with teachers and it would allow teachers to feel more confident in taking chances. Many see me now, after several years of being in the tech field, but don’t see my progression from classroom teacher to instructional technology specialist. I want my teachers to know that “they can do that!”

What about you? What super power would you like as an educator? Or, maybe – what would you like to be more of to make your teaching more effective?
