My best teacher moment so far: a bunch of us put our heads together to encourage our students with the high stakes testing here in Ohio. Nearly 40 staff and 300 students participated and this is the result http://youtu.be/-IhRBECemu4 If you have ever heard 300 or so 3rd through 5th graders burst into waves of cheers and applause, for themselves, you would know why this is what I chose. The first time they saw it, at least for that moment, I know they thought they could accomplish anything, and it is an amazing feeling to think I had a part.
