During this journey I have been overwhelmed. I am learning so much especially about different ways to integrate technology into my classroom. The problem I am having is time. When do I have time to not only integrate the new things into my classroom but when do I have the time to show my students how it works, and for that matter, teach myself how it works and how I want to use it. I love that I am learning so much but I feel so stressed that I am not using enough. I am making a list of everything I want to use and over the summer I will decided when to use it and for what. Right now I feel like there is too much on my plate. In our 702 class we are making a timeline to try new things. I think this helps but I'm not sure how many new things to introduce this late in the year.
I do feel this journey is making me take a closer look at myself as a teacher. I feel that I am learning so much about how to better my teaching practices. I am glad that I am doing this after six years of teaching. I feel it is helping me feel fresh again (and a little stressed). I am excited to keep learning and trying new things in my class to better my students' learning experiences.
