keeping it ‘real

18 Nov

it was nice to sit down and have a real conversation about the work that is done in a gt classroom.  i had the pleasure of beginning my first coaching contract, in my current role.  it seems like everything i see that is ‘wrong’ with my current responsibilities is ‘right’ when i have the time to have real conversation…something very hard to do with a group of 50.  i understand the reality of professional development and the art of facilitation but i much prefer the individual or small group.  it’s not a control issue, i’m fine with ‘real’ conversations happening that i don’t have my finger on the pulse of, so to speak.  i think it is the mindset of the crowd.  it’s easy to do something else when you don’t feel like someone is paying attention and i think that is the trap that some teachers fall in to.  i don’t EVER want to make my thoughts about casting dispersions on the teachers i work with, and that is not what this is about.  this is about me and what i perceive to be happening when i work with groups of varying sizes.
