#TLAP #XPLAP #PlayLAP are all giving me a few goosebumps right now. So many neat ideas that get me excited all over again about teaching.

Energy Bus

I am inspired by our Turner cohorts. I can't wait to try the Energy Bus for Kids from August to May of 2017-2018 school year and assess the impact it has on my students.

Teacher movies!

I know they are cheesy but I love teacher movies. Stand and Deliver, Freedom Writer's, The Ron Clark Story, Mr Holland's Opas, Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet's Society, even Waiting on Superman. Watching these inspire me. So many times it feels like I'm working against all odds, I'm putting my life on hold and making sacrifices and wondering if it's worth it. These kinds of inspirational stories help me remember that it is.

This video reminds me of the student I want to teach! I want to look for more ways to inspire this type of excitement in my classroom


Audri's Rube Goldberg Monster Trap

Audri would like to say thank you for the encouraging comments. He is 7 years old and he can read so please keep it positive. He wants to be a theoretical physicist when he grows up and has big plans to study robotics at MIT.

I get educational goosebumps from thinking about our students immersed in outdoor experiences. I would love to create a course around gardening for nutritional, environmental and economic purposes. I can picture students knee-deep in soil, planting, tending and harvesting crops. I also picture them selling said crops or creating nutritious meals from them. I can also picture students creating solutions to local environmental concerns related to air and water quality.

I am so inspired by #TLAP. I want to continue to hook my students with engaging activities and content! I have some classroom transformations planned that I cannot wait to do. I've already done one transformation and the most rewarding thing and the thing that pushes to continue TLAP is the students' faces and the high level of engagement. It is so amazing to see children truly ENJOY learning. That is what TLAP does! 

I have a ton of ideas for next year to gamify my lessons and continue to TEACH LIKE A PIRATE!!! 

First step is buying the actual TLAP book!
