I have used her teachings ever since. I often think of her when I need to make a financial decision, “first you own if and then it owns you,” is what she would often say when it came to debt. She filled my heart with joy and inspiration every time I was in her class. By far she was my most memorable teacher at Shasta College.

The support and encouragement means more than you know. This is a terrifying thing to do, but I do it anyway, because I care, and am dedicated to doing something real in support of all the people I work with in this system who care about kids.
I would love to engage you in this work and have some things you can do to help that will result in real support for your teacher friends and family. If you’d like to call me, we can chat more: 530.966.0073.
Your message gives me hope and fuels the way ahead. Thank you!

Thank you for your hard work, dedication, and truth. What you are seeing in education is a sad reality. The treadmill just keeps going faster just as you mentioned, and very few teachers are saying, “Bring it on! I’ve got the tools and support I need to feel great about what is going on!”

How can I help? I retired in June after teaching for many years. I have teachers in my family and teachers who are friends who have been or are stressed, exhausted, and empty. Some are looking for other venues for their talents. Your voice is important and I appreciate the fact that you are willing to start a conversation and movement to change and help education.

Please contact me if there is something I can do to advance your ideas.
Sincerely,
Dede Barnes

Comment on Five easy ways to increase engagement in your classroom by Kathy Curtiss https://www.futuredevelopmentgroup.com/five-easy-ways-to-increase-engagement-in-your-classroom/#comment-272 Wed, 02 Nov 2016 20:31:29 +0000 http://www.futuredevelopmentgroup.com/?p=4554#comment-272 Michelle is right on here in her comments. Increasing student engagement, specifically academic conversation has been shown to impact achievement! Student’s say, “I didn’t realize I knew this until I head myself say it out loud!” And how fun! To create discourse in the classroom around key learning targets! This is where all those little tidbits of wisdom and insight just pop out of the students. Go! Go! Go!!
