We are excited to be back for 2020. And we are now on Monday. Renay will be the first to tell you she does not appreciate the demands that Monday brings. On the other hand, this little experiment may work out for everyone.
Just to catch you all up: we still have been publishing silent. It’s kicking us too. The books we are working on are very demanding in terms of things we need to make the book possible. We’re taking our time to get things right.
But it’s at the very forefront of our minds.
Most campuses in our area have returned and students have stories, both good and bad. But it is time to take stock and move ahead past the break. This is a hard time of year. For the next month, we are likely to have many Mondays off. There are some districts with ski weeks in February as well.
Behaviors are going to be all over the place for many students. It’s a good time to remember that going back and doing a quick touch in on expectations every day is important. Reminding students that what they need to do is probably the last thing many students want to hear, but it is important to maintain a professional relationship with the students and to remind the student, no matter where the student is, that things are the same here at school.
Things we’re looking forward in 2020
We have had some lists of topics we’d like to cover for years now. And we finally have some pieces in place for everyone. We hope to get to topics soon that cover some history of education and some more communication practices.
And a book. We’ve not published in so long. We’re very excited about our upcoming books.
Looking to meet us?
Renay will be at Cal-TASH 2020 this year. We are very excited to return to Cal-TASH.
While we’re talking
We did get online a few days back from this posting and were surprised to meet a reader. Most of our posts do not ever tell us when someone has read, we only get back the numbers of readers or at least clickers. But we are still very honored to have followers who are interested in our work. And as always, we thank you for reading.
