While I wondered if I would feel lost in September without the stimulation and challenges of teaching, I can say with certainty that it has been a very exciting first two weeks of the month as a new full-time employee of the Institute for Excellence and Ethics. It was immediate immersion into the heart of the program when I had the opportunity to sit in on the Power2Learn presentation for teachers at Cherry Hill Alternative school in New Jersey. One cannot help but sit back in awe of the progress, precision, and potential of all the people, materials, research, technology, content, and execution of the new Power2 Programming.
Following that, this week we have been back at the office publishing lessons as well as continuing the creative process of units to come. It is certainly a busy, crucial time for IEE and its partners, but I am grateful to see and experience firsthand the efforts and rewards that come with producing such a high-quality and high-need product that teachers and schools will directly benefit from. More to come as Power2 Programming pushes forward and IEE continues to develop.
