Introducing Katie Breedlove
Most times, when teachers feel they don’t have anything to offer or say within a blog post, their posts are often profound. After speaking with my friend @Katiebreedlove, I immediately logged on to read what was her second blog post (I think ever), Perseverance. In our conversation she expressed she wanted to blog more but felt as though she didn’t have enough to say. If this post is saying “nothing”, I cannot imagine what saying “something” looks like.
She tackled a hard topic, perseverance. We strive as teachers to get our students to push past quick results in times where quick results are what matter. I dare say there are teachers out there who are afraid of taking a chance and persevering through the hard change. With such a fixed mindset, teachers prevent their students from solving problems, make sense of them and seeing things through to a solution. Katie provides her view of this within her “elevator speech” in which she expresses what she wants for her students, perseverance. Keep writing my friend and welcome to #mtbos!
