155: Bonus Edition- Interview with Angela Watson

ANGELA WATSON (formerly Powell) has earned international recognition for her unique contributions to the field of education.  A pioneer and trailblazer of modern teacher blogging, she was first known for Ms. Powell’s Management Ideas for Teachers, a website she created in 2003 to share behavior management strategies, teaching techniques, and organizational tips. The site was expanded and renamed TheCornerstoneForTeachers in 2008. Since then, Angela’s ideas have been featured in thousands of magazine articles, newsletters, and internet resources, and are utilized in teacher preparation and support programs throughout the nation. Having earned a master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and National Board Certification as an Early Childhood Generalist, she currently works as an instructional coach and educational consultant based in Brooklyn, New York. Angela has 8 years experience as a K-12 instructional coach and 11 years experience in the PreK-3 classroom. As founder of Due Season Press and Educational Services, she has created printable curriculum resources, online courses, 4 books, the Truth for Teachers podcast, and the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek Club. Quotables You have a lot of responsibility, but not a lot of autonomy Traditional time management advice doesn't really apply to teaching Teaching is a complex job If you do not have enough time, that is not your fault What teaching looks like now is completely different from what it looked like 5 years ago Envision a better way Does the amount of hours worked equate with effectiveness? It's not about how long you are working or how hard you are working, but are you working on the right things? As teachers we are waiting for permission Mind shifts happen over time I am not satisfied with the status quo Small changes add up to big results 40 Hour Teacher Work Week Club Check out this podcast episode (and blog post) related to the 40 Hour Teacher Workweek: What would life look like if you valued your time as much as you value your money?
