With a changing world comes changing opportunity.
Since giving up yearbook I've been the fill-in teacher here at Peninsula High School. In addition to covering technology I have been the person with the certification that grandfathers me to teach anything K-12 except special ed. The personal joke is I'm the 21st Century Paladin--'Have Cert, Will Travel."
Next year I will not be in the same room I've populated for the past 17 years. That may mean a move across the street to the old wood shop, teaching in 7000 square feet of industrial education history to teach woods, small engines and robotics or traveling cross town to bring technology to kids on another campus.
Whatever unfolds, I next year will be one of the more challenging yet. The best part is I have choices and the choices are all good. Can hardly wait to see what I post next month.
The video below was produced in sketch up and shows our campus. My room is behind the bleachers on the left side on the second story.
UPDATE: I am the new English/Technology teacher at Henderson Bay High School. I will be teaching two classes of English, photography, graphics, and architecture. This is an alternative school where I meet students four days a week with class sizes between 10 and 15 students. I will miss my friends at Peninsula High School, but am looking forward to building friendships on a new campus.
