Tonight, I submitted my application to be part of the 6-12 Science Curriculum Committee. With our new career management web application, I had to request approval to submit the application, but we’ll save that story for another day. I probably got a bit carried away in my application, but I take these efforts seriously. I’m not going to share my entire application since that would be too self promotional. However, I do want to share part of my answer to the prompt “Explain why you feel you can represent your grade level/content area/building colleagues in this work.”
… Most importantly I’m not afraid. I’m not afraid to ask questions; I’m not afraid to call anyone out; I’m not afraid of what people think of me; I’m not afraid to look stupid; I’m not afraid to learn new things; I’m not afraid to take risks; I’m not afraid to fail; I’m not afraid to throw it all out and start again; I’m not afraid to work hard. I’m not afraid of change.
