63:09 minutes (21.68 MB)

We're back from a two week leave due to school vacation weeks. Today's Conversation was about using events, patterns and structures and examining the 5 events that led us to go into teaching. Lisa, Maria and Sheila each shared the 5 things that led them into education. They looked at the events and then looked for the patterns. Taking it further, they asked about the system that is in place that allows for these events to happen or for the pattern to evolve. Of course, there was plenty of conversation.

Lisa was off on vacation this week while Maria and Sheila discussed working with Colleagues.  What can we expect? How can we value differences and create unity? Maria shared a tool called True Colors. Many participants took the test to find out their personality "color." Scott Shelhart (orange) joined the orange and green personalities for a short bit. Although finding out about yourself is interesting, the important part is learning how others perceive you, how you can work with others knowing this information and not prejudging.
