C4T Summary #4
My Teacher number 4 was Ms. Kelly Hines. Ms. Hines has so many great posts, it was hard to choose 2 to comment on. We all had to comment on her post "A Commentary on Comic Books", a post about the new movie Waiting for Superman. The other posts I commented on were "The Sum of the Parts" and "Teaching Job Description". The first discussed how how she hated being disconnected from her circle of friends that she talks to often. She talked about how she kept up with them individually, but it wasn't the same as when they were all together. The ideas didn't flow as freely and such. This really made me think about how helpful a PLN really is. The second post was about the job description of a teacher. She talked about how so much more time and feeling is put in than just from the hours of 7:30-3:00. I really loved this post! I think she nailed exactly what it truly means to be a teacher. She mentioned how much it means to her kids just to go to their events like football games and such. She also talked about how much emotion you actually put into the job as well.
