    After reading everything I can on all sides when it comes to the redesign of our education system, I'm optimistic for the first time since NCLB went into effect. Teachers will no longer be treated like "human capital", with a top down, military-like structure and teachers working on the front lines. Instead, I see a growing consensus that there's a lot to learn from veteran teachers, who will be consulted when it comes to making decisions. Principals will actually seek teacher input. A sleeping giant has been awakened, and it's a new day.

    We need to focus on student learning as our goal as opposed to teaching. To ensure that my students learn, I work closely with other teachers (in and out of my school district) who are getting the job done (students perform well on standardized assessments), I research constantly in areas I feel weakest, and I invest in my own professional development. Even whent he district has no money to send me to conferences, I use my resources (when possible) to attend. In other words, I am always improving my practice as a K-12 professional.
