Confessions of a Father - Issue #43


Education Hunt

May 30 · Issue #43 · View online
Hi, I'm Sam. I love technology, especially the kind I can use in class. In fact, I love technology even if it isn't for class. I keep a list of resources. They're hand-picked by me, Sam.

This has been a week. One for the annals of Sam when I look back. Not sure what the lessons are, I’m certain they will show their face. I have no clue when.
Anyone who knows me longer than 13 minutes knows that I advocate action. Pick a path, execute. If something isn’t shaking out your way, sometimes you have to throttle down and take action. It may not be the best action, but you get it moving. 
This week enjoy 3 resources aimed at changing tempo. Before you press on 2 things I have to ask.
- I started a new blog. Stoic Daddy. For the record, it’s for me. I’m no sage or guru. I have some experiences which have changed my perceptions. No promise on the post quality, or quantity. Heavy on the stoicism and what it means to me to be a father. Not that I have anything figured out, by many metrics I’m losing ground. I have no clue where I’m running with Stoic Daddy. Cleary, not everyone’s flavor, that’s ok. If you enjoy Education Hunt and would like to continue the ride, punch a ticket and hop in. Check it out, spread the word, and follow my future ramblings. 
- Live or die? Mash the button at the bottom of the issue. Thumbs up if you like, thumbs down if I’m slipping. If you shot a thumbs up and like the content consider buying me a coffee. I expect nothing and appreciate everything.

Discipline = Freedom
Second only to being a parent, teaching is the most important profession in the world.
Having the ability to work in an intellectually rich environment, while serving others was an attractive proposition. I passed on the potential of a sizeable income for the promise of doing important work. As teachers, we sign up for a lot. Part of the deal wasn’t living paycheck to paycheck or to be on the verge of bankruptcy. Teaching is a blessing, our pay is our cross to bear.
