“Rita Pierson: Every Kid needs a Champion”

I love what she said:

” So teachers become great actors and great actresses, and we come to work when we don’t feel like it, and we’re listening to policy that doesn’t make sense, and we teach anyway. We teach anyway, because that’s what we do.

Teaching and Learning should bring joy. How powerful our world be if we had kids who were not afraid to take risks, who were not afraid to think, and who had a champion? Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.

Is this job tough? You becha. Oh God, you betcha. But it is not impossible. We can do this. We’re educators. We’re born to make a difference.”

The importance of personal branding – How to represent yourself


I just would like to share the article that I’ve just read from Microsoft Jobs Blog. I realized that as a teacher, it is also our duty to push and encourage the learners how to represent themselves in the job market, and make them aware what path they can choose or what personal brand they can possess.

Someone who is caring to his/her students…

It’s not really my dream or ambition to be a teacher someday, but when I was a kid, I always play the role of a teacher when we do role playing games or make believe games. And out of nowhere, after college I decided just to go ahead and apply for a teaching job. I never forget during the interview, the school director asked me, “What is teaching for me is it a profession or a job? “, I can’t remember how I answered the question but what I remember is that in my mind  – “I just need a job and make money”.

This year is my 15th year of teaching and I can say I love teaching… considered teaching as a profession and not just a job.

Learning Analytics 101

I think this can be a good tool for all teachers. This is what I need to assist me in analyzing and assessing my student’s progress. And of course this can be a very helpful tool for students as well, to see their performance records promptly and be able to reflect on their learning.

This is a very nice infographics for better understanding on how Learning Analytics system works.
