My video,"Leadership lessons from Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote", is a cute animated video, about two different types of leaders. The character, Road Runner, is the kind of student that teachers want. He does not rush to get through things, he tries to solve his problems the correct way. He never lets anything put him down, and he keeps trying to meet his goals. He is friendly, and works well with others. Wile E. Coyote, on the other hand, is the total opposite. He rushes through everything, and tries finding the short-cut to his problems. Wile E. Coyote does not care about his goals or communicating with others. The purpose for students to watch this video, is to see which type of leader you are, and hopefully have characteristics like Road Runner.
This blog was posted on August 25, 2012. My comment on Ben Jone's blog was: I think this video is a great example of a leadership lesson! It helps students see that they should be more like Road Runner. Wile E. Coyote likes doing the short cut for things, but does not get very far. If we try helping our students be more like Road Runner, they will meet their goals, and never stop trying to improve themselves.
No one is perfect
The second, most recent, blog Ben Jones posted, on August 15, 2012, was about imperfection. The blog said, that as educators we all mess up , and it can be hard to admit. Some people want to be perfect at everything, and you can not be like that as a teacher. It is hard for some people to say they are wrong. You just have to admit that you are not perfect, and you can do a better job next time.
I think his blog was straight to the point, some people can admit that they are not perfect, and others can't. Some people get so down and sad about making mistakes. Everyone needs to face it, we are humans we all mess up sometimes! Imperfection is beauty!
