I'm a Tech Resource Teacher responsible for 71 teachers and 1,000 students. Each year it seems that teachers are feeling more stressed due to time constraints with curriculum guide requirements. When I suggest a technology project, the teacher will say, "There's not enough time," "How can I get it in?" "I have to get a 77% on testing to meet the AYP goal for the government and can't afford to not practice for testing," and on and on and on.
My point is: how do you encourage your teachers?
