A few weeks back my principal asked me if I would be willing to present my flipped classroom. I was a little apprehensive, as I am just in the beginning stages of the process of flipping my classroom. I agreed, and we presented on Monday night.
Looking back, I am so glad that I agreed to present. The Board was engaged throughout the entire presentation, even interrupting a few times with questions. Some of my most memorable moments & quotes:
~ "Game-changer...that's what I thought about when I listened to you talk."
~ "We need this in every class."
~ "I wish I would have been in your class when I was in school."
~ "What can we do to help? This is the kind of innovative idea we love!"
~ And finally, my superintendent gave me two thumbs up when I was finished (and a handwritten thank you letter).
Overall it was an excellent evening that gave me a much needed (after having had a frustrating day in the computer lab) boost of spirit.
