alaskatracy Blessed for many bad experiences that finally resulted in the willingness to change everything in my life, one day at a time 17 years ago!

I have about as much desire & enthusiasm to re-learn elements of PreCalculus as I would for pulling out my own fingernails

Tutoring my daughter in PreCalculus makes me feel like an English-only speaking contestant on Chinese version of “Smarter than a 5th Grader”

@Tmlunday @Kacy_EdDucator lots of teaching situations that are far from ideal - seeking mentorship always a good goal tho…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tmlunday

@KimberBlodgett We need to have minimum standards for teachers to enter the profession, however. I’ve taught some very low ACT preservice Ts

via Twitter Web Client in reply to KimberBlodgett

Amen. We need to showcase more success stories of Ss learning & T mentoring. Can do on http://t.co/QH1CR6LI4V https://t.co/qqAzRVfhyk

@MrsDSings sounds like a call for more model PD in :-)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MrsDSings

MrsDSings A6: I’d like to see less one-size-fits-all PD, and allow T’s to seek out training in their area and to address their own weaknesses

KimberBlodgett Point is, New Ts need more support!!! Don’t just throw them in the water and say sink or swim! I swam of course and still am..

MrLoweOfficial A6 beyond $$$ and respect, we need emotional support… Or at least some stress balls

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 8:48 PM, Oct 4th, 2015 via Twitter Web Client)

Kacy_EdDucator A6 pay mentor teachers from the state it’s an on the job training field my district does pay but others cannot

@KimberBlodgett I am so glad that has worked out well for you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to KimberBlodgett

@markjonesphd the crazy thing is, we’d never accept or tolerate “an emergency certified doctor” unless we’re in the military in wartime…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to markjonesphd

A6 All teachers need more opportunities to observe, be observed, reflect, & be mentored. Team teaching & collaboration is also vital

vperezy Q6 What kind of support would you like available to all cert paths to encourage them to stay in teaching?

@MrThomasOKCPS yes, questions are being tweeted tonight by @vperezy - open her Twitter page in another tab :-)

via tchat.io in reply to MrThomasOKCPS

A5 The pathway to certification is less important than how things go in the classroom. Trad cert is no guarantee of excellence

via tchat.io

grendelrick A5 People learn through collaboration. Wouldn’t it be fabulous if new teachers could co-plan and co-teach with a veteran?

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 8:36 PM, Oct 4th, 2015 via Twitter Web Client)

SPSheehan A4) New T’s MUST make time to observe veteran T’s. Observation and collaboration with veteran T’s is why I am where I am!

@jlblack1212 poor analogy. Teaching & learning isn’t a horserace, despite what pols say. It’s much more like learning to be a good gardener.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jlblack1212

A4 Most important thing we need as teachers is regular opportunities 4 mentorship & support. Encouraging words are hugely important

via tchat.io

vperezy Q4 What are ways experienced Ts can help new teachers, no matter the path? What areas need the most support? pic.twitter.com/XC0J4ge8ME

@jlblack1212 I agree some people are naturally gifted teachers, but like any skill it can get better with practice & experience

via tchat.io in reply to jlblack1212

@jendoty7 do emergency cert teachers get paid more?

via tchat.io in reply to jendoty7

A3 means some schools (maybe many?) must hire any college graduate they can find. It means not all are qualified

vperezy Q3 What kinds of challenges do these multiple pathways present to your school? pic.twitter.com/eN1JfLowqv
