Okay, I'm back....or am I?
So this was a great deal longer than a 'brief' hiatus. I did, indeed, finish my Masters. I stand now at the end of that educational road, but am wondering where I should go from here. In terms of my education, I could become certified in educational technology, or go for me PhD. in educational technology. Or, I could go totally crazy and become certified to teach something different altogether.
Likewise, I stand in a similar situation regarding my blog. I want to be innovative - to bring up thoughts and ideas that are different than what others have thought to ponder before. Perhaps this is just year-end burn-out still talking - maybe I'm full of ideas that I haven't even come up with yet. Or, perhaps, I am placing too much pressure on myself to be an innovator. After all, I can be an innovator in my workplace by spouting out some of the different information that others have been touting for the past five years. It all depends on who your audience is.
Some of my least favorite student projects have been those where it is obvious that the student has just tried too hard to impress me. Perhaps I am doing the same thing, here.
At any rate, I am back, and I will be posting. If you have any topics that are of interest, please let me know. Also - I am beginning to lay out my consulting schedule for next year. If you want me to come into your school/district, please email me at sroustan [at] fhps [dot] us. Happy summer!
