MESSAGE FROM THE
AND CEA CHAIR
Enrich your Career Embrace Change
OUR NEW YEAR is off to an incredible start. The momentum from our Annual Meeting has continued to drive our
association to new levels. We continue to receive positive
reinforcement from our Government Relations Committee
as they move through Negotiated Rule Making with the
U.S. Department of Education. Last year's victories have
established the groundwork for this year as your association continues to evolve. We have more opportunities to
influence our future with a laser-focused agenda.
First on our agenda is providing avenues for the emergence of our collective voice. One path to support School
Owner and Industry Partner members is to unite our
advocacy through our AACS PAC. We did an unveiling
at the annual convention and have started the process
to formalize the efforts. This is but one way to join other
members to pledge support for our future endeavors.
Another opportunity to assure that our voice and
message converge to be heard is attending our Spring
Leaders Summit/Capitol Hill Day event in April. This
is the first time we have merged these two pivotal
events. As AACS members, you will learn about the
Workings of Washington first hand from our experienced GR Committee members and speakers and have
an opportunity to meet with our government officials
to represent our industry during Capitol Hill Day.
Additionally, we are in the midst of our national
search for our new Executive Director; we are confident
that the vetting and selection will go smoothly so that
we are able to achieve a timely introduction to your
new Executive Director.
Our strength is our emerging voices and the willingness to be committed and become involved - to unify
our efforts. There are significant avenues for participation and contribution by joining one of the many
committees supporting AACS. With any organization,
there is a need for a path to develop strong leaders.
Involvement is critical to assure our viability.
I invite and encourage all of our members to come
together with our best voices to support our message
and sing our praises for the value we provide to our
industry and communities. Looking forward to meeting you "on the Hill"!
BY NATURE, WE hate change. We are creatures of habit and set in our ways.
But change is a good thing, and we have to learn to start embracing it.
Change is what gave us freedom. Change is how elections are won. Change
is why your kids will have more than you did. Change is the new black™!
* Cell phones. It's time we started saying "yes" to cell phones. I have an
entire blog post about cell phones in the classroom, so I'm not going to go
deeper into it, but I will say it's the number one hesitation I see teachers
having today. Change it now. You can't be stubborn forever. One of these
days you'll have to switch on that light switch to light a room instead of
using a candle.
* Tablets/laptops. Note taking can be done electronically. Most students
can type faster than they can write. Allowing laptops and tablets is something many teachers are doing, but many aren't. I know you think they're
on the internet - but as a teacher, it's up to you to set those boundaries.
Walk your classroom and make sure they're on task.
* PowerPoint. We have the luxury of skipping the blackboard, whiteboard
and overhead charts. We get to use a PowerPoint presentation! That
means no more long, boring paragraphs. PowerPoint presentations can
use color, pictures and video - so why in the world are we filling our
slides with boring textbook quotes? Our students have a textbook. Use
your PowerPoint to coincide with your content, not repeat it! You might
be used to using it the same way you did your overhead charts. Stop it.
Photos and video should be the bulk of your slide content.
* Lectures. Get rid of your lecture classes. They're not working. They actually
never did, we just didn't know any better. Classes should be animated, fun
and full of student participation. If you're the only voice that's heard in that
classroom, then no wonder kids are showing up late. You want to bring
excitement? You want test scores to go up? Quit the lecture-style teaching.
Change is the only way you'll reach the present and future generations.
Let your students teach you something, like maybe a new app that you
didn't know about. Make them feel valuable. You don't have to have it all
figured out. I learn from my students every day. That doesn't make me a
poor teacher. It makes me approachable, and it gives students value. Enrich
your life by enriching the lives of others...Always!
I am excited to see "old school" teachers embrace technology and change.
That is what every great educator needs to be doing. Join other like-minded
educators at the 2018 CEA/AMP Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada, July 14-18.
We will be embracing change, learning new innovative teaching methods
to enrich our everyday experiences and bringing excitement into the
classroom. Hard Rock Hotel...here we come! For more information, visit
Never underestimate the power of an educator!
