SBT’s Week In Review
One Thing I’m Doing (Did) To Push Myself
I made it through concert week! I had rehearsals/performances each night as well as faculty meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as the normal goings-on of school. It is now Sunday afternoon, the concerts are over and its time for renewal before starting over again tomorrow.
One Thing I’m Reading
I’ve been closely following the downfall of the Oregon Project at Nike with formerly beloved Coach Alberto Salazar since one of my heroes, Kara Goucher, began to blow the whistle several years ago. This last week, I’ve read the accounts of Mary Cain, Amy Yoder Begley, and Lauren Fleshman. I’m amazed by their courage, strength, and humility. I hope this is just the beginning (along with the USA Gymnastics/Nassar affair) that finally gets us talking about changing girls’ sports.
One Thing I’m Listening To
I just binged on The Next Big Idea podcast this week. I’ve already read one of the books they discuss (Range), but now have a wish list going of all the other texts on the list.
One Goal I’m Working On
This week, I’m looking ahead to how I’m planning my entire week off for Thanksgiving. I tend to use my time better when I’m busier, so scheduling a balance of work and rest during the week’s vacation is a good idea. (Work meaning reading reading reading!)
One Tool or Resource I Love This Week
I remain ever faithful and grateful for the Goodnotes app. This week, I started to shift to adding articles to it for annotating, as opposed to putting them into my beloved Evernote. I also use it for all my meeting notes as well as my math classes and sermon sketches. The UI with the iPad/Pencil is just fantastic.
My Favorite Part of The Week
I worked with our new faculty this past week during their session on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We engaged in some identity work using the “Where I’m From” framework found in Reading to Make a Difference. I had done this lesson with our Sixth Graders in an expanded format and it was lovely to share it with our new faculty.
