One thing that is very different from a year ago that I'm grateful for is this blog. Last spring, I took the plunge and created a blog. I wrote a couple of posts, but it wasn't until I accepted the Teach Thought blogging challenge in September that I began to write on a regular basis. Although daily blogging is taking its toll, I'm up for the challenge and I'm enjoying it. I especially like November's topics. I'm all about having an attitude of gratitude, so in the midst of all the busyness, I make time to write out my thoughts. Best of all, I'm inspired by reading everyone else's posts and learning from others' experiences.
One year later, I'm now a tweeting teacher, a connected educator, a reflective blogger and today I signed up for my first EdCamp. I'm so grateful for all these experiences but I'm especially grateful for how I have evolved as an educator and I believe the best is yet to come. Still a cocoon in the hopes of evolving into a beautiful butterfly.
