From our Educator Guest Blogger Series

I will always consider myself a teacher first. I taught high school Spanish for twelve years before transitioning over to the position of Media Specialist at my current school. The news stories of teachers leaving the profession in record numbers do not come as a total shock to me; I know the extreme stress that large class sizes and endless paperwork can bring. It is worth noting that while teachers are facing a mounting wave of frustration, there is also another evolution simultaneously taking place in the world of education: personalized learning. This could be seen as yet another thing to be added to the overburdened teacher’s plate, but I see it as an opportunity for an educator to “recharge their batteries” and discover a new approach to teaching.
