I had a leader I respect as a mentor tell me "If you want something done, give it to a busy person." It's true, but it comes at a cost. That's why it's on us to learn to say NO when we can't do it all. I struggle. Service-oriented folks are always trying to help. #utedchat twitter.com/KBeddes/status…

@MichelleOrmond Part of being human is failing, learning & growing. When it becomes systemic, there are real consequences. It's too bad we can't seem to celebrate everything we're doing right when we're doing so much. Is it a mindset thing? Right there with you. #utedchat

@DeborahGatrell1 @GraniteSchools A good way to encourage buy-in for participants AND teacher leaders. A bit of the green to encourage presenters? Smart and fair. Is this a new program? #utedchat. Anything going on about it at #UCET18 #YOUCET18 ?

@MaripoZel @GraniteSchools There is a list of 'approved categories' from the district to keep things focused. They put out a call for presenters to all the teachers in the district. Teachers propose workshop sessions. Those approved are built into the conference schedule. Stipend for presenters. #utedchat

@btalonia It's a great experience. You should set it up at your school! Here's a related article that prompted the conversation: washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sh… Teachers had different experiences, but it was enlightening of all of them. #utedchat

Education - art and science and definitely not for the faint of heart. #utedchat twitter.com/FarrBfarr/stat…

@MrPhelps_Math That's the great part about being on my school leadership team - I questioned the school mission statement, and we changed it! #utedchat

@ajmerritt @KBeddes When roles change, trust has to be rebuilt. Simple as that. I have different relationships with admins that with fellow teachers because the power dynamic is different. It's not personal, it's just a question of whether or not the power will change people. It can. #utedchat

It's true: good school leadership has a powerful effect. We need that to get us all pulling in the same direction. It breaks my heart to see struggling schools with floundering teachers and little student learning because of ineffective leadership. It happens. #utedchat twitter.com/kennyassmus/st…

#utedchat Today for VDay at @ClaytonSLC Middle school PTA was spinning discs. Great DJ. The kids were forming chains dancing, it was loud Uptown Funk and I Can't Feel My Face. The kids were having so much fun I was grinning ear to ear. Just like them. Good job Jared W.

@coachbpreece @covili @vb_kristin NO! We can't let negativity beat us down! We owe it to our students, to each other, to ourselves. #uted #utedchat #utpol #utleg @HSG_UT pic.twitter.com/NUbEN2npKy

@jedikermit Right there with you! Looking forward to that 'stipend.' I think too often #uted teachers are taken advantage of because we'll do what needs to be done whether paid or not. But the right thing to do is to compensate. #utedchat #utpol #utleg

@MaripoZel @GraniteSchools Last year was the first event. Teachers were skeptical but won over fast. The investment in quality food spoke volumes on the district's commitment to making it a worthwhile event. We're doing it again next year, but cutting back to 2 days from 3 to better manage time. #utedchat

@vb_kristin @tabitha_pacheco I see that in my near future. Glad I held onto those Personal Days so I can get to the PD I need/want. Yet, shouldn't I be using them for PERSONAL reasons so I can try and keep my life semi-balanced? Oh, the irony. #utedchat #uted

So true. No one should look down on classroom teachers. EVER. That's where the rubber meets the road. Everything else should be supporting classroom learning - teachers and students working together. #utedchat #uted #utpol @HSG_UT @SenHoward twitter.com/vb_kristin/sta…

@TCSDSupt @DeborahGatrell1 @Darling_Math Wise words-work smarter, not harder- have a focus on building relatioships-truly give kids the chance to grow, develop, and find their passions #utedchat
Brady Farr @FarrBfarr
@DeborahGatrell1 @Darling_Math So true-sprinting the entire marathon is unsustainable-even for those who are most conditioned-So important to have a "big" picture perspective-realize that we are educating the "whole child"-striving to give them knowledge, skills, and dispositions #utedchat

@KBeddes That's where a blended role would be perfect! Time during the day to be a teacher AND a leader without all the trade-offs with such high personal costs. I hate teacher movies because they glorify the sacrifice. Those teachers don't last in the classroom. #utedchat
