In the brave new Web 2.0 world of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and a million other social networks, blogs can feel downright old-fashioned at times; so much so that I wonder how many people actually read them (or this one). My fellow blogging school psychologist Mo evidently does, as she tagged me in her latest post, in which she nominated me for a “Lighthouse Award”.
I haven’t done a good old-fashioned (there’s that phrase again) blog meme in a long time, so here goes. The rules:
- Display the Award certificate on your blog.
- Write a post and link back to the blogger that nominated you.
- Inform your nominees of their award nominations
- Share three ways that you like to help other people.
- There is no limit to the number of people that you can nominate.
- HAVE FUN
Anyone with a career in education helps people constantly, but to narrow it down a bit, these are my top three ways in which I try to help:
- I provide assistance, guidance, advice, and options in a rational and non-judgmental way.
- I empower teachers to grow as practitioners in my role as a professional development consultant.
- I listen more than I speak (at least I try to).
I read blogs daily from people in a wide variety of educational roles, but in the interest of professional visibility, I’m nominating a handful of school psychologists. I believe we are seriously underrepresented in the educational blogosphere, so I want to round up a few that I know of and hopefully create some new connections for any school psychs in the audience. Thank you all for your contributions to my learning:
I know it’s a short list, but a) I didn’t want to double-dip on Mo’s list (check them all out as well!) and b) didn’t I tell you there’s just not that many of us?
