TODAY'S RECRUITMENT PROBLEM
The present day hiring methods are outdated. They focus mainly on degrees and years of experience that consider repetitive tasks whereas the core competency of today's jobs is "critical thinking". 1. Practical skills are more sustainable today, so it is adviceable to channel recruitment efforts on skills that pay off on the long run,
2. Schools are adviced now to focus on skill based education, with technology as the backbone.
This way, our schools stay relevant, the curriculum becomes more effective and we end up with a more reliable work force.
Erikson’s Barbara Bowman Leadership Fellows are coming together again this week. Our fellows have been doing a lot of work outside of Erikson and will complete their policy memo problem identification with the help of our subject matter coaches this Friday.
HOW TO CUT DOWN ON CLASSROOM CHATTER
1. Establish what a student should do when they need help. For example, they can signify by raising hands.
2. Use visual reminders like pictures, noise level indicators and explain what silence level you require from the students at any time.
3. Establish a sign to signal absolute silence. For example, say "Quiet, Please". 4. Be vigilant. Classrooms can be a tough nut to crack. Watch out for situations like friends that can't do without talking, and swap their sitting positions.
5. Shower them with praise. Pay attention to particular behaviours you are praising, and ensure you drive home the message properly.
6. Look out for a mentor and take a cue from their classroom management skills. Approach them for advice on how to become better.

Wednesday night was a time for celebration. Our staff hosted past and present participants of our Early Childhood Leadership Academy programs to celebrate all the good things that happened in 2018. Thank you to all who were able to make it out, what a great night to toast the work being done in early childhood.
Thursday morning of dead week: watching yourself teach for 30 minutes the day after doing said teach about the History Alive! Writing for understanding strategy - a miniteach you’ve been stressing about for a month but now it’s DONE. (And you know you rocked it)
How does your classroom look • AFTER • KIDS • LEAVE? • Are you constantly having to clean up after them? Scrambling to get missing work together for absent kids? Or just upset that your room looks like a tornado went through it?🌪 That was me last year. 🤦🏼♀️ I couldn’t figure out WHY the students had no respect for our classroom. The reason? They felt it wasn’t their responsibility. They saw themselves as 1/100 who came through so why should THEY be the one to help? Once I realized the problem, a teacher friend and I came up with our classroom jobs. Students apply for jobs (teaching them real life writing skills), and then are given jobs and paid (in classroom ticket money) each week based on their work ethic. ((Next semester I’m going to implement an interview portion to this as well.)) Before I go on and on though I just wanted to share how much this has changed the way my classroom looks on a daily basis. I spend less time cleaning and scrambling, and instead I have time for prepping fun lessons! The kids learn responsibility and real world skills, and I don’t go insane trying to do everything myself 🙃 This is on my TPT for FREE 💰 so head over and grab it 👍🏻 #classroomjobs

• NO • TEACHER • TALK • Josh and I agreed that on this trip we would leave teaching back in Raleigh, and we would just enjoy the beauty of Asheville and just be together. I could’ve taken this weekend to catch up on grading, or make new lesson plans, or do a number of teaching-related things ✋🏻 but sometimes you just need a break. P.S. Biltmore pics are in my story!
