I shared this week how to roll with the high and lows of striving for excellence by using an analogy. I was meant to be innovated and thoughtful. My hope is for people who read it understand that trying new things is kind of scary, but fun as well. Especially when you are with friends. I think some people enjoyed the analogy. I also share a couple of websites for people to get inspired. I am not sure what I will do next week as I never know what I will write until I start. I have a outline but then it has a life of its own.
I got excited when I read Ginger’s blog. I down loaded the book she recommended. I have been teaching for ten years now and am ready to branch out and find my own style. Which is to teach kids to be ready for the world. It looks a little different than the usual special education room, but it feels natural to me!!
I also appreciated Andrea’s comments about it is hard to say no. I have gotten better at it, but I still fall into that pleasing trap. Having a clear vision of what I want my future to look like will help me to stay focused.
