Have you been in the education field for five or more years? Do you attend at least three meetings a week? 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? Have you been so busy you can't remember the last time you went to the bathroom? Have you ever been determined to try some tips you learned from a speaker who shared inspiring stories of greatness in the classroom, 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. In the newest Teach With INFOhio blog post, Get Your “But” Out of the Way with INFOhio, learn how you can recover from being a “Yeah, But…” Educator and transform into an Intentional Educator.

Encouraging students to think about "the big questions" is an important part of developing inquiry and building critical thinking skills. In Inquiry in the Social Studies Classroom and Beyond: Leading the Next-Generation Digital Citizens to Multiple Perspectives and Reliable Resources you'll learn about C3, a powerful inquiry model that provides a framework for rigor and prepares students for college, career, and civic life.

The weekend is almost here! It's time to kick back and relax. But we think that the weekend is also the perfect time to get your professional growth on. We're not talking about parking yourself in front of a computer or sticking your nose in a scholarly journal. Our latest blog post is the first in a new Teach With INFOhio series we're calling Your Weekend Playlist for Professional Growth. In this series, you'll find podcast episodes, videos, and more that you can listen to or watch while relaxing. For some playlist items, you can earn a certificate of attendance for professional development. Others may not earn you PD CEUs but they're worth the watch or listen. Either way, you'll be growing professionally—learning more about yourself and getting inspired to bring your "A Game" to the upcoming week.
