Day 12: How do you envision your teaching changing over the next five years?
I was recently having a conversation about exactly this. In the next five years, I hope to continue to develop my own practice and help others to do the same. However, the path I'm going to take is uncertain.
There are lots of Blue Sky things I'd like to do in the future, including:
-study for a Masters degree
-become a full-time professor in the BEd program
-present at an international teaching conference
-open my own school
-write a book
I need to narrow down some of these dreams in order to get on a path to becoming Future Shauna. I'm just not sure which one is my most urgent goal.
Everything I'm doing now is in service to these goals, but it's been pointed out to me that I need to narrow my focus.
The one thing I do know is that I have no desire to leave the classroom in a full-time capacity. I get energy from working with students and am not willing to give that up.
Hopefully working with the Think Tank, Comment Consortium and inspirational colleagues will help me sort out the path I'd like to take.
