This is the latest in a series of blogs by partners of the Fluency work.
Over the last few weeks, even more educators have grown #TheNewHomeroom project even bigger by adding their beliefs and dreams to this conversation (you can see previous additions to this work here and here). Teachers at a school district in Ohio and another in Pennsylvania joined this work during their first days back for the 2020-2021 school year, intentionally making time to breath, reflect, and vision together. Another group of educators collaborated across districts in August to build their version of #TheNewHomeroom.
This group was unique in bringing together teachers across grade levels an across generations. One participant, now retired but still just as invested in education, joined alongside his former student who is an elementary teacher herself. It was a strong reminder of the legacy that we can build through education, and the collegiality that's critical to the health of educators.
Below are the values and actions generated by this cross-district group in August for #TheNewHomeroom. Thank you to T~L Rogers, Laurie Ruberg, Eric Trio, Riley Carpenter, Lori Dougherty, Jordan Robinson, Isabella Droginske, Jonna Kuskey, Lou Volpe, Quenton North, Natalie Bigelow, and Rachel Miller for sharing your dreams for teaching and learning!
