In a few days, for districts headed for F2F instruction, hundreds of students will fill our buildings. They’ll come with spanky new shoes and that first-day sense of nervous excitement. And they’ll look to their teachers for the same things they always have: a passion for teaching, care for their well-being, interest in who they are, and belief in their unlimited potential. Let’s welcome them with enthusiasm. With optimism. With smiles. Let’s let these children know that we’re thrilled to see them. That we could not be happier to be back to school. And let’s show our students what life in the shadow of a pandemic can look like: a life of faith, love, gratitude, and an abundance mindset. Not a mindset that ignores the challenges ahead. But one that says we will find a way through a challenging situation, and we will make the best of it together. It just might be the biggest lesson we teach all year.

My new position has me psyched to start new initiatives, explore the greatest pedagogies, and experiment with the latest learning tools. But a lot of that will have to wait. The reality is that we face chaotic circumstances. There is so much uncertainty. And again, so many questions. What will we do when staff members test positive for the virus this year? What will we do about substitute teachers? How can we effectively manage student supervision without burning out our staff? The list goes on and on. Students are anxious. Parents are anxious. Teachers are anxious. Administrators are anxious. For many, this is a time of fear. And learners of all ages don’t learn, they don’t grow, they don’t thrive in contexts of fear. Long ago, the apostle John wrote that “Perfect love casts out all fear.” A simple but profound thought, and perhaps never more timely.

Doubt, discouragement, and disillusionment: as education professionals, most of us have experienced these emotions at one time or another.

And we can forget that others have faced their demons, too. With that in mind, here are ten stories of adversity from great educators and guests of the Teachers on Fire podcast. They’ve faced burnout, depression, and everything in between, and they’ve found ways to survive, thrive, and overcome. You can, too.

My interviews with educators on the Teachers on Fire podcast are simply conversations that could be enjoyed between two professionals over a phone call. But instead, they’re being heard thousands of times by educators everywhere. And perhaps that is the simplest way to summarize the contrast between synchronous and asynchronous learning: an in-person exchange versus one that is recorded, saved, and published. The conversation is the same in both. But the shape and scope and power of the learning that can follow is very, very different. It’s time for educators to embrace the power of The Asynchronous Mindset. I’m excited about what’s ahead. Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice.

What might it look like if as a professional learning community, we took ten minutes out of every week to answer these questions from the context of our professional practice and shared our results with each other? 1. What are you currently learning about professionally? What problem are you wrestling with in your practice? Which skills are you trying to master? 2. How is that learning going? How do you know? 3. What do you think are your next steps of professional growth? Sharing might look like small physical groups circling up at the end of a staff meeting. It might mean responding to a quick Google Form at the end of every week. Reflections could even happen on Google Slides, Flipgrid, Padlet, or Twitter — all amazing tools of collaborative learning. However it rolled out, I think it could be a powerful practice. Remember: students learn more when they are active, invested, and involved in the process. When they are given agency and ownership. Teachers are no different. Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice.

I’ve taught in schools in four cities. In each context, the student populations have been majority non-white while the staff populations have been majority white. Take my two stepsons, for example. They are finishing tenth and eighth grade. Their father is white and their mother is Filipino, although to see them you might assume that they are not white at all. Yesterday I asked them if they have ever had a teacher of Filipino or East Asian descent from Kindergarten through eighth grade. Nope. Not a one. Think about that. In their first nine years of education, they have never had a teacher or administrator who looked like them. They’ve had a lot of nice teachers and administrators, sure. Great people, even. But compare my experience to theirs. I almost always had teachers who looked like me. They never have. Does that effect privilege white kids? I think it has to.

Recently a friend reached out to me with a question. “I’m thinking of becoming a teacher,” he shared. “What do you think?” I’m 41, and I’ve been teaching for 19 years, so I have a pretty good sense of this profession. But education looks different for everyone. The stakes are high in this field. It takes a lot to get into teaching, and it takes even more to stay in. And the stakes are even higher for students. So instead of giving my friend a flat yes or no, I decided to lay out the pros and cons as well as I could. Welcome to SPARKS: mini-segments intended to spark your thinking and ignite your practice. These short episodes are based on my written reflections, which you can find on the Teachers on Fire Magazine at Medium.com. Read the blog post featured in this episode at https://medium.com/teachers-on-fire/so-youre-thinking-of-becoming-a-teacher-818cb87cceb9?source=friends_link&sk=03167419b7d64493686fb85a44f56a4e.
