The last couple of weeks have been hectic but so amazing and full of learning opportunities. I have totally been enjoying the new group of students that I have been working with this semester. There have been many moments both planned and not planned and positive and not so positive that have occurred. Even though I have taught for many years there is still much to learn from each situation and there is always a chance to get better, meet the needs of my students where they need it, work with colleagues to improve each other, and also look after personal and family life. I have also many opportunities to grow professionally during the last few weeks with SIOP training, institute and teacher convention, looking a privacy protocol, teacher issues, take on a pre intern, and all the goodness that was Microsoft Education Exchange.
I plan to write separate blogs on these events/experiences but I just thought I'd collect some of my thoughts and see where they take me. There is always something to reflect, share, challenge, and grow from. I feel very fortunate to recognize this and hope to this to another level and share with and hopefully have something to offer that would at least make one person stop and think and even make them better too.
