Pirate Teacher Ahoy!

One of my favorite books right now and my favorite PLN is #tlap.  Teach Like A Pirate is written by an amazing tweep of mine and we meet every Monday night. What do pirates do?

  • Pirate teachers have innovative ideas
  • Pirate teachers work on increasing student engagement. 
  • Pirate teachers work on boosting creativity.
  • Pirate teachers are passionate. 
  • They develop outrageous but engaging lessons that captivate students. 
  • Pirate teachers develop a relationship with the students. 

I am a teacher. I am a learner. That is my superpower, and I glean great gems from my PLN and from books they recommend.
