Quotables

  • Doing it well and demonstrating you can do it well are two different things…teaching a subject is a different beast than knowing content
  • Kids are bored and demoralized- If they are not getting it, present it in a new way
  • Organize your mind:
    1. Get it
    2. Save it
    3. Recall it

Questions to Ponder

  • How are you going to remember that?
