  1. Your descriptions of your colleagues are similar to colleagues in all of our schools. I like your plan for approaching the ‘reluctant’ teacher and conducting ‘a one-legged interview’. There are a few teachers I know who struggle to incorporate new ideas and technologies as they find it too time consuming, but I also believe there there might be a bit of fear of the unknown as well. As teachers, some believe we are supposed to be paragons of knowledge (not my description at all as I believe in learning along with my students, and I learn from them daily 🙂), and some teachers, of all ages, will not try new things unless they feel confident with the subject. I think by spending some time with these teachers and helping them become comfortable with new ideas is a worthwhile investment in both the teacher and her (and your) students. I hope you are able to gently nudge this teacher into expanding her knowledge of technology and resources. Let’s hope for baby steps forward.
