Week 13 – Peer Reading Response 2


  • What are your main insights and ideas from the given reading?

There is a lot of truth told in this article. Teachers are awesome, and it takes a special person with specific characteristics to be a successful teacher. The two most important characteristics that were mentioned and that I believe are necessary traits as a teacher, are resiliency and reflection. Teachers go home tired because most of them lay it out on the line, and teachers hear and see things they wished they hadn’t. This is why resiliency is so important.

  • How does this reading challenge/expand/contradict your definition of (digital) storytelling?

Reading this article reminded that to be an effective educator, or story teller it takes an Opportunity mind-set. Specific characteristics are needed to develop this quality.

I am always interested in developing my skill sets at being a more effective teacher, communicator and story teller.
