Imagine a handful of virtual confetti raining down as I celebrate the completion of my 20Time project! Hope you enjoy episode #10, a 10-minute rundown of 10 random thoughts that didn’t fit elsewhere in this classroom management series:
And a final few thoughts/lessons learned from this year’s 20Time experience:
1. It’s really hard to make a video every week on top of everything else I’m doing. There were many Monday evenings where I was editing footage I filmed that day after school because I’d waited until the last possible moment to shoot an episode. (Don’t tell my students I procrastinated – they’ll never stop harassing me about it.)
2. About two-thirds of the way through the process, I experienced the joy of working ahead. Once, I was even able to film two episodes in one week, leaving the following week with the free time I needed to catch my breath.
3. I really love blogging and hearing from you guys, but you’ll likely notice a slowdown from me as the school year rolls to a close. Currently, I’m posting about three times a week, a pace I just can’t maintain. But – don’t worry – I’m still here. You’ll just see a bit less of me in your email notifications, okay?
And, again, whether you’ve watched only one episode or made it through all ten, I really appreciate our time together. I realize that hangin’ with me in the middle school carpool line isn’t the most exciting way to spend your free time, yet here we are – and I’m so happy you’re part of my teacher tribe.
Alright, let’s go out there and wrap-up this spring semester. Teach on, everyone!
