Joe Mazza on Being Connected
"The best thing about these social media tools is that your principals and teachers are exposed to passionate educators. I want to send my child to a school where people are passionate, are always trying to be better. To me, the definition of an innovator is someone who constantly has two screens up: The screen on the left is what he’s using to do a good job on that day, and the screen on the right is looking at what we can do tomorrow, next week, next year, to improve." Read more at

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”--Steve Jobs

"My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people: those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group; there was much less competition."--Indira Gandhi

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid." - attributed to Albert Einstein but probably not his. I love it, though.

Criticism is futile because it puts a person on the defensive and usually makes him strive to justify himself. Criticism is dangerous, because it wounds a person’s precious pride, hurts his sense of importance, and arouses resentment. - Dale Carnegie

Connected Educator Month, October 2014:
Educators must connect with others: fellow educators, parents, students, experts. We can learn so much from one another. Do it today, for yourself and for your students.

“I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn.” - Albert Einstein

“Simply slapping a netbook on top of a textbook, however, will not necessarily lead to significant outcomes. Effective digital media combined with powerful teaching, rich content, and engaged students has the potential to take learning in the United States to a much higher level and provide all students with experiences that allow them to graduate prepared for college and a career." - Bob Wise
