Principal's Suggestion Box Letter #13

These letters are absolutely fictional (to protect the innocent and not-so-innocent.) But, with the hint of truth, maybe we can make some adjustments. Principals have the best chance to do that.

Dear Principal,

I am very excited about the teacher ed tech training day we will have before the kids come back. As you know, I am from another district. What you may not know is that I was trained on PCs and not Apple, so the tech training will be very helpful. I haven't even seen an Apple product for several years, not even an iPhone or iPad, so  it will take some concentration to jump in the deep end with record keeping, flipping the class, etc. I didn't even know how to turn on the desktop! Another teacher showed me the hidden button. It is an elegant design, but you almost need a secret handshake to get info from the computer.

I am very enthusiastic about the iPads in the class. The other teachers have clued me into the particular handling and storage requirements. The apps sound phenominal. Thank you for having foresight in ed tech.

Yours Truly,
Teacher in Tech Transition

My suggestion: The differences between a Mac and a PC can be truly overwhelming if a teacher is just thrown into it. Have reliable resources to assist the transition, without judgement or the hint of the condemnation each side feels for the other. We're all in this together.

Oh, That Sassy Mozart!

W.A.Mozart
Was looking for a sassy picture to go along with this music, but Wolfie's was the best. BTW, you may want to watch or rewatch the film "Amadeus" sometimes. It's still awesome.

Saw a cool production of 'Amadeus' in a tiny theatre in Las Vegas. Be on the lookout for such things.

Music for when you know you're a genius but not that many other people will admit it.
