    Q1: Look at the image. How are all these paths like what we see helping others grow? #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/tFJ4hCkKES
  26. @sandeeteach @amandapalmer001 You are far too kind! Thanks for the encouragement! Much appreciated! #txeduchat
  27. A1 Different people grow at different rates and on different paths #txeduchat
  28. A1 There are many different people with many different ways to help them learn/grow. #txeduchat
  29. A1- many different journeys and paths that we could take..not always the same path for everybody #txeduchat
  30. A1: Like Ss, Ts can take different paths to achieve a goal...need to be willing to take a step...& have support along the way #txeduchat
  31. A1: Ss all are on their own path, leading them where they need and want to go, Ts just help them get there #txeduchat
  32. @aaron_hogan A1 the activities should have multiple paths to find answers. There is not one end answer #txeduchat
  33. A1) For both an educator and a student, it's about the learning journey and the twists and turns along the way. #txeduchat
  34. #txeduchat A1: Many ways 2 teach & learn... as many approaches as there are people... #variety #choice
  35. A1 Yes! Learning takes many different paths for learner and educator #txeduchat
  36. A1. Everyone learns differently and takes different paths to overcome the obstacle/hill. #txeduchat
  37. A1: You may not see the end of the journey when you start #txeduchat
  38. @cybraryman1 @amandapalmer001 Jerry is the MASTER and has a page of resources for everything you'll want to know! #txeduchat
  39. It's nice to meet everyone! Forgive my slow pace as I get used to this style of chatting! I'm used to regular chatroom-style. :) #txeduchat
  40. Excited to join in #txeduchat tonight. Looking forward to connecting with my great pln from Texas and elsewhere.
  41. A1: Lots of different paths, some more complicated than others, talk to all you encounter to help you make good choices #txeduchat
  42. These paths represent many ways to reach our students. #txeduchat
  43. Good evening! Amy, principal from Indiana joining for a bit! #txeduchat
  44. @tracyacramer Truth! :) Think about all those things that change your own path as an educator. #txeduchat
  45. A1: Leading and teaching should be more like a roadmap than a GPS. There's not simply 1 way to get from point A to point b #txeduchat
  46. @nathan_stevens Couldn't agree more! So many ways for Ss and Ts to be successful! #txeduchat
  47. A1: Think there are many ways to grow as individuals & seek improvement as educators #txeduchat
  48. @DrGbates not only our ss but think about the community as a whole..parents are sometimes needing guidance and paths too #txeduchat
  49. A1) growth takes the learner down divergent paths and being ok with multiple outcomes welcomed. Where innovation is birthed. #txeduchat
  50. #txeduchat A1 Profound question. Adage: Ts learn as much from Ss and they from Ts. All on journey to somewhere. What do we share going by?
  51. A1: teaching is not a straight forward journey, reflecting, revising, and revisiting ALWAYS! #txeduchat
  52. #A1 Multiple paths for multiple Ss in order to be successful! Learning must meet the needs of everyone! #txeduchat
  53. #txeduchat A1 We must assist in the navigation process but ultimately the students choose the path that is right for them.
  54. A1- There is not one path for learning. It twists, turns, & each person takes the path that allows them to grow #txeduchat
  55. @aaron_hogan Divergent paths based on the inquiry path taken. Winding paths to follow & grow as a traveler of life. #txeduchat A1
  56. A1: Notice the things that aren't obvious: Work toward those who are ahead of you. They can help direct your path as you grow! #txeduchat
  57. A1: Learning is a journey...Take risks! (for ourselves & our Ss) #txeduchat
  58. A1 Every S chooses/walks his own path, @ his own pace. Our task is to facilitate getting to the end without walking it for them. #txeduchat
  59. Too true, but the path you choose needs to be the journey (long or short) that is right for YOU. :) #txeduchat
  60. A1- I do like that there are no street signs on the paths though...this lets us individualize our journey #txeduchat
  61. A1 Ss and Ts know the general direction they are going in, but not what they'll find along the way. #txeduchat
  62. Hi! Jessica from South Florida. Will be teaching kinder next year for the first time! #txeduchat
  63. Can someone RT the question for myself and new people? #txeduchat
  64. A1: reminds me of this! So many different paths can lead to growth and success!  #txeduchat http://t.co/PEzSAXecu4
    A1: reminds me of this! So many different paths can lead to growth and success! #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/PEzSAXecu4
  65. @nathan_stevens I would have guessed that it would be you adding a Terminator reference sir! #txeduchat
  66. A1 - Try a path and if one doesn't work then try another path. Always different ways to meet objectives. #txeduchat
  67. @aaron_hogan I like that perspective. You never know where the path of growth will take you! #txeduchat
  68. A1: reminds me that everyone has there one path and it may not be the one we want them to take. We have to be supportive & there #txeduchat
  69. #txeduchat A1 That like from Colossal Cave "maze of twisty little passages". We can be lights along the way or dark doubts. Up to us to pick
  70. A-1: there are several paths to success and options are important and allow for personalization! #txeduchat
  71. A1: I also noticed suitcase. Ss will have different journeys, can we help them be prepared no matter the path? #txeduchat
  72. @Daynateach As important for the educator as it is for the student. #txeduchat
  73. @tracyacramer Each learner has to follow his/her path toward success. Guidance is needed along way. #txeduchat A1
  74. @rwootenits I know I have a lot to do to get there, but luckily I have great colleagues to help me! @sandeeteach #txeduchat
  75. A1: Notice that there's no designated Ts or Ss path...we all walk together #txeduchat
  76. Q2: How is this situation like an educator or student who is growing? #txeduchat http://t.co/HnmAMg3zlj
    Q2: How is this situation like an educator or student who is growing? #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/HnmAMg3zlj
  77. #txeduchat A1: so many paths for students to find success. Not one right way.
  78. @jsbe333 Great way to frame that Suzie! Asks "What we can do to help them on any path?" #txeduchat
  79. @jsbe333 We need to help them unpack their learning along the way-then reorganize for next path. #txeduchat A1
  80. A1 If I'm going to grow I need to have some choice in the path I take or I may never take the first step. #txeduchat
  81. A2 Definitely out of his/her comfort zone! Can't stay with what we know! Have to expand! #txeduchat
  82. @amandapalmer001 @sandeeteach We all do, Amanda! Having Sandy ahead of you is awesome, she's a great guide! #txeduchat
  83. @jsbe333 Love this! Hadn't picked up on that before you mentioned it! #txeduchat
  84. @Tom_Kilgore I truly enjoy learning from this awesome group! Happy to be joining in! #txeduchat
  85. A2: There have been WAY too many times when I feel I am barely hanging on by my fingertips! #txeduchat My reminder for Ts and Ss!
  86. @TechIntegratio1 Navigational ---not content but skills, self-awareness, decision making, adaptability, growth mindset...#txeduchat
  87. A2Sometimes you feel like you are just hanging on by a thread, but with support and determination we can find our way to the top.#txeduchat
  88. A1: Sometimes it isn't the end that is important but the journey. We know where we are going but okay to take different roads.#txeduchat
  89. A2 Take a risk! Your PLN will be your safety line! So proud of @amandapalmer001 for jumping in tonight! #txeduchat
  90. A2: sometimes you need to leave your comfort zone to grow. Take a leap of faith- it's almost always worth it #txeduchat
  91. A2) Though you can have the proper tools/training much of it is feeling your way as you go. Experience is a master teacher. #txeduchat
  92. A2: Growth is hard.It feels dangerous because it is unfamiliar. Keep your eyes on the prize. Have faith in the process & hold on!#txeduchat
  93. There are going to be uncomfortable situations like this. Learn from them and grow. Take risks and enjoy the journey. #txeduchat
  94. A2) Students and teachers need to take a chance. Try something different. Trust each other in the journey. #txeduchat
  95. A2: Growing is all about taking risks! Try, try, & try again! #txeduchat
  96. A2 taking risks in a safe environment . This S is moving out of his/her comfort zone. #txeduchat
  97. @gphilhower I like that you can peak those hills at different points. It's not just the illusion of choice. #txeduchat
  98. @aaron_hogan #txeduchat A2 In order to grow you must be willing to take risks and go out on that ledge once in awhile,
  99. @rwootenits @amandapalmer001 Rachelle is one of the BEST ppl to help you learn tech-Edmodo (or anything else) Follow her! #txeduchat
  100. @brynmw Yes and without the thrill sometimes students might not go down the path with us. #txeduchat
  101. A2: Think it signifies risks as learners & in life. We have to help learners be willing to risk & try w/out fear of failure #txeduchat
  102. A2 there will be times we may be alone (esp. when in students' best interests) but hang in there! #txeduchat
  103. A2: the Ss needs to take risks in their learning but Ts can be their harness of safety! #txeduchat
  104. You must provide the atmosphere where Ts and Ss are encouraged to take risks! #failforward #txeduchat
  105. A1: each path takes us 2 different places-success,failure,each of us has different distances to travel based on our experiences #txeduchat
  106. A2: Growth involves risk, stretching, discomfort, and boldness #txeduchat
  107. @heffrey Good point. First day teaching may be a little scary, but it gets easier each day. #txeduchat
  108. A2 always be willing to take risks...reach for the sky...but don't forget the sunscreen...always have sunscreen #txeduchat
  109. A1: skills and drive can help you master what others might consider impossible #txeduchat
  110. A2: Sometimes you need to go out of your "comfort zone" and try something you've never done before. #txeduchat
  111. @aaron_hogan A2 sometimes learning isn't safe. There aren't nets to catch students when they fail #txeduchat
  112. #txeduchat A2 No one ever grew by staying in the garden of comfort.
  113. @TechIntegratio1 Suspended in air-risk-taking needed to find way w T as guide. Training prepares trainee for climb. #txeduchat A2
  114. @jsbe333 I totally agree, Suzie! Need a solid PLN to help us extend past our comfort zone. #txeduchat
  115. #txeduchat A2 Picture is harsh rarified environment. Helps being prepared. Success req's critical thinking which school opens a window to.
  116. A2: Pack the right tools for the job of you'll find yourself stuck in a predicament! #txeduchat
  117. @cvarsalona So important to have the support and training to make those choices. #txeduchat
  118. A2: Taking risks, but minimizing the chance of failure by using all the right gear and knowledge #txeduchat
  119. @snydesn2 The risktakers are the ones that make a difference because they have learned that in struggle we meet success. #txeduchat A2
  120. A2: As educators, we have to experience risk and uncertainty to understand and empower our students to navigate. #txeduchat
  121. A2- The beauty of growth is found in the attainment of a goal. It's not easy, takes some risks, but rewarding when summit reached #txeduchat
  122. A2: It might be scary to take risks but it's worth the risk.#txeduchat
  123. @tracyacramer ha! that's hilarious! Even more so as I'm sitting here trying to ignore the fact that I got very sunburned today #txeduchat
  124. A2: Sometimes we hang by our fingertips, but when we get to the end we realize how every bit of the experience made us grow. #txeduchat
  125. A2: Sometimes there is great risk involved in growth, but look at the view that this climber has earned! #txeduchat http://t.co/aP2YxpxkdO
    A2: Sometimes there is great risk involved in growth, but look at the view that this climber has earned! #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/aP2YxpxkdO
  126. A1: The "boulevard of learning and teaching" looks more like this 👉  http://ow.ly/i/biQMz  #txeduchat
  127. @jsbe333 absolutely!!! if we don't model risk taking and failure how do we expect our ss to learn #txeduchat
  128. @aaron_hogan A2 the tools we use should put use the edge of the learning experience. #txeduchat
  129. Late to join #txeduchat... Looks like an awesome chat tonight. I'm Christine from the Sunshine Coast, BC Canada. Math educator, doctoral Ss.
  130. @aaron_hogan Agreed - without risk there cannot be growth. You learn from your struggles and mistakes. #txeduchat
  131. A2: If you are not taking risks and trying new things you are not growing #txeduchat
  132. A2: #txeduchat Even when you think you have a handle on your goal you can slip at any moment
  133. A2: Growth is hard work and almost impossible without the right support, but the view from the top makes it worth it! #txeduchat
  134. .@jsbe333 So true! We ask our Ss to take risks so we need to do so as well... Sometimes challenging to show vulnerability #txeduchat
  135. @tracyacramer Additionally, if we're not willing to think critically about our teaching, then how can we require it of students? #txeduchat
  136. I'm struck by that pic. It's not just the risk-taking. It is also the shining sun, peaking through #txeduchat
  137. A2: willing to take risk and there is always a light to light the way. #txeduchat
  138. A1. There is more than one way to reach a common destination. Reminds me about diversity. Reminds me about choice. #personalized #txeduchat
  139. At some point, you have to step out and risk a few things. If not, you'll do things the way they've always been done. #txeduchat
  140. A2 u need to put urself out there beyond comfort zone sometimes, to learn something different #txeduchat
  141. A2: Teaching is like going to the doctor we assess and prescribe a treatment based on the data #txeduchat
  142. @poida Hey! Great to see you! Meet my teammate and #nt2t @amandapalmer001 Awesome first yr T and needs to build PLN :) #txeduchat
  143. @nathan_stevens @aaron_hogan but there should be! Scaffolding to support the learning. Giving illusion that there are no nets. #txeduchat
  144. @ChristineYH Yes, there are so many different voices waiting to be heard and to share their stories of learning and growth. #txeduchat
  145. Help me by providing the necessary supports in my learning! #txeduchat
  146. A2: Sometimes you have to take risks to learn and grow. Having supports around to catch you if you fall can also help though. #TXeduChat
  147. A3: I just see a happy elephant! I think he took a risk and enjoyed the result! #txeduchat
  148. @VaganekVal Twitter Tip #1 To find a chat question you missed 👉 Go to search tool and type in the chat name & question # eg. #txeduchat Q2
  149. A2: Be willing to let go. Be a risk taker and try new things! That's when growth happens! #txeduchat http://t.co/PstUdgQkIc
    A2: Be willing to let go. Be a risk taker and try new things! That's when growth happens! #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/PstUdgQkIc
  150. It just wasn't my day. Learn from the experience and try to move on. #txeduchat
  151. A2. Sometimes you have to take risks. Sometimes you're left hanging. You just have be patient. Look out at the horizon. Dream. #txeduchat
  152. A3: You don't know what's possible unless you try. #txeduchat
  153. A2: There's such great value in working for something that's hard to reach! #txeduchat
  154. A3: When in SCUBA dive I love the feeling that comes when the first breath for my regulator takes over. Always a relief. #txeduchat
  155. A3 - just keep swimming just keep swimming...oh wait wrong pic...sometimes u need to jump feet first into the pool of learning #txeduchat
  156. @KristalFloyd I hadn't even thought of the light shining through. What a great observation! #TXeduChat
  157. #txeduchat A2 To me the photo isn't about risk. It's about going out into the world in a ready state. Get school'd. Get ready.
  158. Grow your network! Follow, connect, & collaborate w/the amazing educators in #txeduchat tonight!
  159. You may feel unfit to try a new skill (elephant = heavy = no swimming), but it shouldn't stop you! DIVE in headfirst and swim! #txeduchat
  160. A3: Sometimes you have to jump in before thinking. The best growth takes place when you least expect it #txeduchat
  161. Teaching and leading requires novel experiences. Novel experiences require doing the unexpected. #txeduchat
  162. A3: you won't start swimming like a fish on the first day. It takes practice and hard work! #txeduchat @txeduchat
  163. A3: Looks like a "get outside your comfort zone" statement to me! Or maybe that we need to "stir things up!" #txeduchat
  164. A3: Its ok to spend time floating in the shallow end, but to grow you must try the deep end & ask for support! #txeduchat
  165. A3) Jump;first, lead by example. Make a big splash. Others will follow. #txeduchat
  166. @brynmw @nathan_stevens Right. Risk is great, but there's no need to have risk for risk's sake. Be smart about your risks. #txeduchat
  167. A3 Sometimes we try things but it may not be the best thing. Hopefully we learn and make better decisions moving forward. #txeduchat
  168. A3 - Sometimes taking the plunge and trying new things is the only way to learn a new skill. #txeduchat
  169. A3 I don't think growth is ever graceful and there is nothing wrong with that. Growth is reinvigorating #txeduchat
  170. a3: You jump in...you sink at first...and then realize I have the tools to survive! #txeduchat
  171. @tracyacramer @beckthetech An elephant never forgets that jump into the pool with the goggles. #txeduchat
  172. A3: Ts have to learn how navigate the environment that they are in no matter how unfamilar #txeduchat
  173. A3: You have to learn to adapt to an environment you are not born into. Learn new skills, and be great at them. #txeduchat
  174. A3- Pure joy comes from growth & learning. Jump in and go for it. You never know what may come from it! #txeduchat
  175. @gphilhower Yep. One gets thrown back in your face (deservedly so), and the other makes people invest in their own learning. #txeduchat
  176. A3) Complete shifts in thinking are required when considering new frontiers in education. Be the different. #txeduchat #leadupchat
  177. A3: If a big land animal like an elephant can swim, then I can certainly conquer whatever challenge I am facing!! #txeduchat
  178. @sandeeteach @amandapalmer001 likewise! 🙌 .... always great making new connections and always great learning together! #txeduchat
  179. @craigyen Agreed! Make a Big Splash! Let them know you are there taking a risk #txeduchat
  180. A2 Sometimes we need a different viewpoint to see the beauty or problem of a situation w/ a student or fellow co-worker. #txeduchat
  181. A3In order 2 grow we have 2 "surface" the elephant even if it's under H2O! Courageous conversations lead 2 growth & understanding #txeduchat
  182. #txeduchat A3 Even the best preparation can result in failure. Resiliency allows for recovery, and next attempts.
  183. A3: The elephant doesn't know he can't swim but he believes he can do great things in the water. #txeduchat
  184. A3 learning and growth are messy,. You make mistakes, flounder a bit, build on those mistakes and learn #txeduchat
  185. @lauriemeston Sometimes you just have to dive into those courageous conversations! #txeduchat
  186. A3: The elephant is thoughtful we know, so STILL jumping after knowing the risks is critical #txeduchat
  187. @beckthetech Out of necessity when you realize that you're sinking. Google says that elephants are tireless swimmers! #txeduchat
  188. A3. Sometimes it feels like a struggle. Sometimes impossible. This is part of the journey. If it was easy, why bother. Persevere. #txeduchat
  189. A3: I think I'd rather be in the pool swimming then sitting by the side waiting for the splash. #txeduchat
  190. A3: Take on that thing that you thought wasn't meant for you! You can adapt and thrive! #txeduchat
  191. AAA3: Learning is like the elephant in the pool! 🎓 #txeduchat
  192. Q4: In what ways is this like your experience growing as an educator? What about helping students grow? #txeduchat http://t.co/KH1327qJl5
    Q4: In what ways is this like your experience growing as an educator? What about helping students grow? #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/KH1327qJl5
  193. @aaron_hogan I think your tweet was meant just for me- always inspiring ;) #txeduchat
  194. @aaron_hogan A3 sometimes when learning something new. I feel like you are drowning #txeduchat
  195. #txeduchat Late to join,been reading thru,great topic! A2 Sometimes may feel like barely hanging on,taking a risk,just stop & think,then act
  196. Coming in late! But, I'm here now! Hi everyone!!! ☺ #txeduchat
  197. A3: Don't be afraid to try something new, even if you look silly doing it. You gotta try it before you knock it. #TXeduChat
  198. A-3: Sometimes we lose our way and struggle to get back on top! #txeduchat
  199. Howdy, #txeduchat! Sorry I'm late.Was teaching my kids card games & lost track of time.I'm Lisa Marie,K-5 tech apps teachr 4 Lewisville ISD.
  200. .@KellyClifford9 When you mentioned the importance of support, the goggles on the elephant's eyes made me think of that. #txeduchat
  201. A3: "It's time to trust my instincts, close my eyes and leap...it's time to try defying gravity!" Be brave and leap! #txeduchat
  202. A4 Take the road less traveled and enjoy the journey with your students! #txeduchat
  203. A4 - Blazing the trail with new ideas, allowing students to have a voice and getting others to follow. #txeduchat
  204. A4 Ss may need us to create a totally new path for them so they can succeed #txeduchat
  205. A4: You're going to have to leave a trail if your growth is going to greatly impact others! #txeduchat
  206. A4: Sometimes others can't see the path ---whether its Ss, Ts, or Ps, and you have to help them visualize the path. #txeduchat
  207. A4 - country roads take me home...to a place I belong...take the road less travelled and C where U end up #txeduchat
  208. A4) Sometimes the road we travel is not yet paved. Make a path and help students learn. #txeduchat
  209. A4 Love that one! I've pioneered a few paths in my Edu journey and use it as a way to inspire and invite Ss to come along. #txeduchat
  210. @lars3eb Except using Twitter of course LOL Everybody knocks it down until they learn the POWER of PLN! #txeduchat
  211. A4: if the path you're taking isn't working, create your own #txeduchat
  212. A4 if there is no path, make one...now that is risk taking! #txeduchat
  213. A4: Ss can create solutions you wouldn't have previously considered. Open yourself to their creative solutions! You'll both grow! #txeduchat
  214. @sandeeteach Yes, something about diverging woods and wood peckers pecking #txeduchat
  215. A4: If you are going to be innovative, you may need to chart your own path to get there! #txeduchat
  216. A4: sometimes I had to build the road of my own learning in order to help my Ss find theirs #txeduchat @txeduchat
  217. A4: Being a connected educator is giving me access to people and tools that are helping me blaze new trails. #txeduchat
  218. @SusanLJones And sometimes the Ss can create the path for us if we let them lead #txeduchat
  219. @Tom_Kilgore #txeduchat A3 shows not to limit oneself, try new things, take a risk, see what happens, might suprise yourself!
  220. A4: forging a new path is difficult work that makes life easier for those that come later. #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/aaron_hogan/status/610256927566757888 
  221. A4: as educators we start their paths, as leaders we go forward no matter what #txeduchat
  222. @sandeeteach It's so sad but true. I wish Ts would just try it out sooner. Oh well. #TXeduChat
  223. #txeduchat A4 Sometimes you have to carve out your own road and travel upon it until your pursuit proves fruitful.
  224. A4- Create your own path of learning. Personalize it. But make sure your path also opens the drive for others. #txeduchat
  225. Brilliant! A step in the right direction for an aging society! 🙌

  226. A4: Sometimes there is no clear path to student success. You have to go where "no one has gone before"! #txeduchat
  227. @amandapalmer001 @aaron_hogan You make a good point. Just don't follow the "easy" path. Jump before you leap. #txeduchat
  228. Have to step off the beaten path and create ur own way to success at times #txeduchat
  229. A4: Life is an open road...Keep moving forward, embrace the journey & become empowered by any forks in the road! #txeduchat
  230. A4: The future of Ss is never set. The road is always being built in front of them.Ts guide the growth of the road #txeduchat
  231. A3: Sink Swim or learn to Float -make a choice and learn accordingly - seems like Ts and Ss both need to choose #WeLeadEd #edchat #txeduchat
  232. A4 Routines have led s's down the same road of expectations for a long time. Creativity & innovation will lead to desired paths #txeduchat
  233. A4: Pave the way and allow students to try new things for the first time maybe they will learn something brand new #txeduchat
  234. Q4she's driving on wrong side of the road.@ school,I feel that when trying to implement new things I've learned(against the flow) #txeduchat
  235. Becoming a connected educator is one of the best things to help me grow the last 3-4 years #txeduchat
  236. A4: Great leaders must lead by example! Pave the path by modeling and breaking new ground! #txeduchat
  237. #txeduchat A4 "Because that's where the money is." —  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Willie_Sutton  on Why he robs banks .. #edcamp is where the educators are.
  238. @AmyHeavin Like that you added in sharing so that others can build upon the "journey" you've made Amy! #txeduchat
  239. A4b: The view can be extraordinary when you are willing to chart a new path...the journey is as important as the destination #txeduchat
  240. A4 Easy to take the same path we've already traveled. It takes courage to carry on esp when we feel overwhelmed by obstacles #txeduchat
  241. A4. At first I could not understand the photo. Now I see. Lead. Pave the road. Model for students. Ss can make their own path. #txeduchat
  242. A5: Always take the path less traveled. Learn in the moment. Push new boundaries. #txeduchat
  243. @txeduchat #txeduchat A4 create our own path, lay foundation, let others follow, or create their own. Not be afraid to take new direction
  244. A4 If you build it, or pave it in this case, they will come! Sometimes starting the new path is lonely, but others will follow. #txeduchat
  245. @nathan_stevens @aaron_hogan I'm starting to think you secretly actually LIKE Aquaman Nathan. He keeps coming up in your tweets. #TXeduChat
  246. Yes, Hal. We have to take the road and see where it leads us with all the risks along the way. #txeduchat A4
  247. @Tom_Kilgore Learning is a team effort. I want to invite others to join in this journey.#txeduchat
  248. A4: Sometimes the best growth happens when we're brave enough to do do things that haven't been done before. #txeduchat
  249. A4: Transformation requires a new road. The old road of simply having an intervention based system won't work. #txeduchat
  250. A4: sometimes, without plns and support, we have to blaze the path by ourselves and show where it leads #txeduchat
  251. @MrPowersCMS So true the relationships we build are so rewarding and make a huge positive difference. #txeduchat
  252. @cvarsalona we must also remember 2 stop for water and breaks on this road as going too fast and not stopping isn't always good #txeduchat
  253. Q5: What about this one? With whom do most educators identify? What about most students? What mush change? #txeduchat http://t.co/ycXWBtWqHM

  254. #txeduchat A4 Without outside inspiration/intervention next year's school will be much like last year's.. wanna be a road trip or road kill?
  255. Q4: All meaningful growth occurs when we step out of our comfort zones. #txeduchat
  256. @KellyClifford9 Hey there friend! Leading & modeling the growth mindset is key to bringing others along for the ride! #txeduchat
  257. A5) Most identify with those following the flow. Seldom do they take the path less traveled. Let's change this. . #txeduchat
  258. @gphilhower Our paths are challenging but rewarding if we follow with integrity, vision, patience, perseverance. #txeduchat A4
  259. @aaron_hogan A4 Photoshop? We need to evaluate our growth to determine authenticity. Are we really progressing? Are students? #txeduchat
  260. A4: Ts pave the road for student learning and in the process learn new things as well #txeduchat
  261. @aaron_hogan A4 the road isn't fully defined-make it what it needs to be. #txeduchat
  262. A5 follow you own path...even if you get lost...we always have google #txeduchat
  263. A4: This just gave me chills: You can be lost, in the right direction. #txeduchat http://t.co/MIl10Kf6yO
    A4: This just gave me chills: You can be lost, in the right direction. #txeduchat pic.twitter.com/MIl10Kf6yO
  264. A5 It's hard for Ss and Ts to venture off on their own path. What's needed is support for those brave enough to try that path #txeduchat
  265. As educators we must get out of our comfort zones and take the path less traveled. #txeduchat
  266. @sandeeteach @amandapalmer001 aren't we all Sandy, those edus not on Twitter are really missing out #txeduchat
  267. A5: Sadly, I think most just follow the crowd b/c it's what's known & isn't as scary or different. We need to be open to try! #TXeduChat
  268. A5 - Scary to go against the "norm" and try those new ideas. Branching off and then getting those to follow - leadership #txeduchat
  269. A5: Unfortunately, school structure is designed to follow the same path. Need to encourage more to chart their own way. #txeduchat
  270. Hey #txeduchat friends - Barbara from Friendswood checking in late. Headed to San Antonio for a @CHARACTERCOUNTS workshop tomorrow.
  271. A5: it's the effective Ts that sometimes walk the path alone & Ss that are scared to break free #txeduchat @txeduchat
  272. A5: #txeduchat Taking the step out of the box or norm is sometimes difficult and lonely.
  273. A5: Ss are more comfortable following. We need to show Ss that making mistakes is how we learn so more will lead & risk #txeduchat
  274. .@tracyacramer @cvarsalona Stopping to reflect & review progress helps us determine if we are still on the "right" road #txeduchat
  275. @kara_welty I just saved that image. Thank you for sharing! Powerful! #txeduchat
  276. A5: most Ss want to belong. Most Ts want to belong. We have to be trailblazers. We HAVE to take a different path to see changes #txeduchat
  277. A5 Tried being the one on the right, but ended up being pulled back to join the left when admin says no. #txeduchat
  278. A5: Most Ts are on the left, but it is not always good to go with the pack #txeduchat
  279. #txeduchat A5 Great questions. In think most will go with status quo until it stops making sense. Then we challenge the establishment.
  280. A5. Nice pic. I identify w/ the person on the right. Ts & Ss tend to veer left. What must change... Both options are ok. #txeduchat
  281. A5: If we want to change the norm, we need to show how awesome it can be to buck the system. Show success of trying new things. #TXeduChat
  282. Absolutely! Kind of like that quote "Stand up for what is right, even if you are standing alone!" #txeduchat  https://twitter.com/Mann4Edu/status/610259384602505218 
  283. @lauriemeston @tracyacramer Yes, reflection is needed for without it we can't ascertain next steps. #txeduchat
  284. A5: There's such great power in being the first to step away from the group! (but it's a tough place to be at times) #txeduchat
  285. A5: The guy going at it alone is building a strength based system, not a system on simply identifying student weaknesses. #txeduchat
  286. Q5 most go with the flow, I've learned through my pln there are new journeys to be had so I'm choosing the path to the right ! #txeduchat
  287. A5: Be willing to be that first follower when you see someone doing something different that's best for students! #txeduchat
  288. A5: As a Ts sometimes we have to take the road less traveled in order to increase Ss achievement #txeduchat
  289. A5: Being legendary often times means stepping onto another path from those around you. #txeduchat
  290. A5- Most follow the path of the way it has been done. Taking a risk to try something new though can reap rewards for our Ss. #txeduchat
  291. A5: In our factory-based system we're shipping most students down the same path and we don't like it much when one strays away. #txeduchat
