2018 – Change

As I come near to the one year I have given my parents to pack and move after 40 years of living in Darien (my reason for leaving Millbrook School) , I recently came across a job description which resonated with me. This school listed as top priorities that the applicant “exhibits a positive way of being as a leader and community member, in all school contexts. Finds joy in working with children, adults, and in school life, and is kind and possesses a healthy sense of humor.”

Let’s all work on creating positivity, joy, kindness and humor with excellence in academics, social intelligence and diversity.

The Riddle of Ice

Technology in education resembles to perfection “The Riddle of Ice.” On a hot summers day it is not the ice cube you care about it is what it does. The driving force of my educational pedagogy has been to make technology in schools transparent. Our schools don’t care about the make or model of a router they just want email and the web to work safely. If you come to the tech office we have already failed. Technology in schools should be proactively solving problems before they become manifest. This is done with extensive work in the summer testing before deploying. This can take years to implement.
