Get Your “But” Out of the Way with INFOhio

Written by // Emily Rozmus Friday, 27 October 2017

Are you a "Yeah, But..." Educator? Take this short quiz to find out.

  1. Have you been in the field for five or more years?
  2. Do you attend at least three meetings a week - TBT, BLT, OTES, IEP, EOC, OIP, DLT, AYP, ELL, RTI?
  3. Have you read at least two required professional books in the past three years and found best practices you wanted to try, but never found the time?
  4. Have you been so busy you can't remember the last time you went to the bathroom?

Did you hear a speaker within the last year who shared inspiring stories of greatness in the classroom? And did you return to your classroom, determined to try their tips, but saw the pile of papers to grade, IEPs to finish, discipline referrals to sign, or list of parents to call and felt overwhelmed?

If you answered "yes" to three or more of these questions, you are at risk of becoming a “Yeah, But…” Educator, or YBE. Admitting that you might be a YBE is the first step to recovery.

Demonstrating School Library Value = Demonstrating Student Success

Written by // Erica Clay Friday, 28 April 2017

As School Library Month comes to an end, it’s natural for library staff to ask: how can we increase awareness and keep the momentum going? INFOhio staff have had several meaningful interactions with library staff, INFOhio Providers, and administrators that have given us a few ideas on how school library staff can continue to demonstrate the value of their school library all year long. Whether your job title is Teacher Librarian, Library Paraprofessional, Library Aide, School Library Media Specialist, or Library Support Staff, make it your goal to demonstrate your school library’s value and finish the school year strong.

Summer Reading—Teacher Style

Written by // Emily Rozmus Monday, 10 April 2017

It's spring and many educators are beginning to wonder what they can do to further their efficacy, effort, and influence in the classroom for the next school year. They will think back about this year, and ask, "How can I engage my students more?" What approach might work better for teaching this concept?" "Should I consider restructuring my reading program?" That's right—the end of the school year often means it's time for some serious professional development. "Summer is the perfect time to recharge," according this to this article from Educational Leadership about ways that being a better student will lead to being a better teacher. Often districts will have prescribed summer PD, but that doesn't mean there aren't easy options for developing your own PD plan—one that will answer your personal questions and build a better educator based on your needs and expectations. INFOhio can help with that. We like to think of it as Summer Reading—Teacher Style. It's free and all you need is time, some mindfulness, and a device with an Internet connection. 

Social Emotional Learning Happens in Your Library

Written by // Erica Clay Friday, 07 April 2017
