I had a SIOP workshop today (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol). It was the 4th of 5. And I really enjoyed it today. I was focused and invigorated the entire workshop, and I really enjoyed everything I learned. It made me think. . . Maybe Brian and my friends were right — maybe I am a teacher, afterall. I mean, if I can get excited about this stuff. . . doesn’t that say something? But I know I can’t turn back. Just because I’m a teacher does not mean that I should stay where I am. So, now I’m thinking about tutoring again. Imagine being able to apply these great things that I’ve learned, but one-on-one, in a home, with no papers to grade or homework to give! Maybe I’m just looking for the right situation. So, that’s the direction I’m going to take next. I know I will find my way.
