Entry 457 for Wednesday July 14, 2021

The core questions:

Credit goes to Ben and readers of his blog for these “Four Questions” and the five stretch questions.

  1. What did you do today? FlipTech2021 sessions including my hosting (I believe) the only Spanish language session; shared a post on LinkedIn highlighting a post from my student Enrique, so proud of him.
  2. What did you enjoy? Enrique posted on LinkedIn thanking people with a photo of his graduation. I was not able to attend (broken leg) but appreciate so much his including my name in the list of thanked persons. I remember him well and our conversations over the years. We have an impact on students but they also have a big impact on us. Enrique was an active participant in a collaboration with students of Cam Macdonell, story in Spanish and story in English about that project.
  3. What did you find difficult? I was waiting for the session to start and was seriously worried about a small or non-existing audience. In the end, my good friend Katie stayed and three Spanish speakers joined as well.
  4. What has changed? In a way, this is a reflection post which I am fond of doing. Enrique is one of so many students that have crossed my path and changed me during my teaching career. In a way this post is about him but more so it is about me as an educator. The students and teacher do not exist without each other.
