How can we balance heart centered teaching in a data driven world?  If data is in the driver’s seat, heart centered teaching is the motor that makes the data move forward.  It’s evident that data is driving educational policy and decision making; however, research tells us that teachers matter, relationships matter, and classroom culture impacts student success.  Yet, scores, data, and impersonal technology continue to be an incredibly powerful influence in and out of the classroom. How can we make the impersonal personal and leverage powerful human connections to help grow more than data, to help grow relationships with our students? Heart centered teaching in a data driven, technology driven world is a challenge we must rise to meet.
