How's everyone? Good I hope. With my new job, we have an ongoing training class where we discuss topics of various themes and subject matters as they relate to our organization and our progam facilitation. We have been discussing leadership in various professional circumstances, especially experiential learning in an outdoor setting, but now our conversation has turned toward education. The topic coming up in our next meeting on Tuesday or possibly Wednesday is what are the top 10 major concerns that teachers face today? I know that here in NY, APPR (sp?) is being implemented. Budget cuts, job loss, behavioral issues, administrative issues, etc., so forth, and so on. I'm sure there are a lot of topics that can be addressed and I hope to get the best cross-section so that I can report what You have to offer. I thank you in advance for your effort if you decide to make a post. However, I offer one more challenge, if it pleases you. I would like posts to be formatted as follows: APPR - an incredibly large document including numerous indicators and sub-indicators that admin will use to assess teacher performance in the following year. Extra information if you want. And how you feel about the issue. Class size - Information to follow Job loss There is no particular order nor is my list of items all inclusive. Let it rip and again thank you for your help.
