The Done Manifesto

  • Tracy Watanabe

    Hi Tom,

    I am living this, figuring out what works and doesn’t work, and it’s a puzzle that I’m slowly piecing together. One of my favorite things when I was in the classroom was designing curriculum and letting the kids have a go at it. Now, my classroom is just larger since it’s the district and my “curriculum” is professional development. I sure am learning and realizing that to be any good, it’s not just the curriculum design or professional development design, it’s in the follow through that the magic happens and transformation begins. Those more experienced might think “duh, of course”… but for me, I’m just figuring it out. I have to keep remembering what worked in the classroom applies to professional development… and it’s learning from the fails that helps as much as learning from the wins.

    Thanks for this post!

    Kind regards,
    Tracy Watanabe
