"Livin' on the Edge" is DuJardin School's theme this year. We are all about celebrating the unbelievable risk taking that the learners (both staff and students-- shout out to George Couros for that phrase) continuously exercise in order to grow and create incredible opportunities. More on this later...
Writing has always been comfortable for me. Blogging allows for re-reading your work and the ability to craft nicely written material. In other words, if I don't think something sounds great, I can change it- easily. However, podcasting makes me nervous. I don't always speak as eloquently (I use that term loosely) as I write. I mess up. I don't use rockin' vocabulary. I say UM... a lot. SO... instead of shying away from a new growth opportunity, I'm going to say "BRING IT ON!" It's time for me to do the same thing that the DJ staff and students are doing- stepping outside of the comfort zone!
SO... WELP... here goes. This year's podcast is called "THE ROAR: LEARNING RUN WILD." Here's a little bit about it:
Looking for new ideas to change the learning landscape in your classroom? We’re here for you! The Roar features different DuJardin Elementary Jaguars (students and staff members) who will be sharing their innovative and authentic learning experiences!
A platform to share the UNREAL things that are taking place for the learners at DuJardin is exciting. We aim to inspire others and also want to learn and grow from our listeners too!
I'm pumped (and apprehensive, of course) about this journey! Please join us, as we "live on the edge."
