A busy week, punctuated like a punch to the nose with too much “professional development.” Why is “PD” so bad? Why is it invariably “taught” exactly the way we’re told to NEVER teach? One wishes the PED Death Eaters would descend upon a typical APS “PD.” They’d hand out “minimally effective” evaluations like handbills outside a Las Vegas casino.
This morning…more “PD.” So not much time to think/write. I wanted to get into the recent Rio Rancho schools formal request to slow down the PED’s Death Eater Evaluation Train (PEDDEET). Not enough time…but plenty of time, I guess, to have “PD” people lecture, castigate and read every bit of PowerPoint slides at me.
But it’s Friday…let’s have a Distraction. As it’s also my birthday, I get to be even more self-centered than normal. I don’t have video, but let’s get away from “PD” listening to what’s probably my all-time favorite Lightnin’ Hopkins tunes. Have a great weekend, everybody.
