Happy New Year....
I love this feeling. It's a mix of joyful anticipation and thoughtful resolve that I will do all I can to make this the best year ever. Unlike the silly feeling in my stomach that comes the night before Christmas, this excitement is both tempered and enhanced by the idea that I am in control of much of what will come my way.
I get to choose my reaction to every little bump in the road.
I get to ask for help when I need it, and help others when they need it.
I get to play with new ideas, continue what I know works, and keep on trying to learn more about being the most effective teacher I can be.
I am blessed to have such a wonderful job with wonderful people.
I'm a teacher, and I love it.
