Over the past few years I have made a point of being very open with my reflections, sharing and learning in areas of education and personal change. As the last year became very busy, projects piled up, and tasks were completed, I spent very little time reflecting on the world around me. I’ve noticed, over the past few months, that I have felt disconnected from the happenings around me, the work I was doing and the support I was trying hard to provide to others.
As I begin to set my intentions for another school year, I realize the importance of taking time to reflect, share and learn on a regular basis. I also realize that this sharing piece is not so much for others as I originally intended, but more for myself as I continue on my journey.
I’m expanding my mantra from last year to add in reflection as a key element to the success for this new school year. Heading into another busy year, my goal is to intrigue, inspire, support and reflect upon educational change for increased student engagement and achievement.
