Teaching is messy. Just when you think you have things figured out you get a curveball, whether it’s a new student, a new initiative or a full moon. Sometimes as a blogger it’s easy to get caught up in wanting everything to be perfectly written: correct grammar, inspiring message, etc. But that’s not real life. That’s not a true view into teaching.
My long overdue New Year’s Resolution is to be more reflective in my teaching and not worry as much about perfection. I want to get my ideas down and share them as quickly as possible. I’d rather get the ideas into the world where they can hopefully help someone else, instead of waiting and waiting for the exact right wording to strike.
My goal, (and since it is in writing I have to stick to it right?) is to write at least one blog post every week. I’m committing to that. I’m not promising magic in my little corner of the internet, but I’m hoping by sharing my ideas I can be a more reflective teacher and improve and grow.
Thanks for joining me on this journey.
