Well, to me it is a Happy New Year! My years go right in stride with school years!
I have so much to blog about, because so much has been going on.. but if you follow me in other social media areas, I am sure that you can figure that out :)
This year I have started my second year as Instructional Technology Specialist... and let me tell you what a wild ride this year has been already! I am also mentoring 2 lovely brand spanking new LIFE teachers.. along with team managing Destination ImagiNation and doing all of my other odds and ends that I tend to take on!
But, this post is about my word of the year. For the last couple of years I have tried to come up with a word that will help me get through the year. This year is Strength
There are lots of changes going on in my world.. and I think that Strength is super appropriate for this year... not only in school, but also in my life. So, this year I will have Strength no matter what obstacles I might have.. I can be persistent. So, I was thinking about this year.. and decided this year I needed a song as well. My amazing friend Todd Nesloney shared this song by Shawn McDonald.. and it is PERFECT!
I have to remind myself that no matter what might be happening in my life.. that I need to have Strength.. and stay Brave!
I know that you are all waiting for my goals for this year!
-Blog at least once a month. I loved when I was writing weekly, but I don't know if I can even begin to make that commitment (but watch as soon as I post this blog that I start writing weekly!)
-Be aware of the the time that I am spending at school. I haven't gotten into my groove yet for not working 12 hour days.. but hopefully that will all change this next week! I am finally to a point in school where I feel like I can leave before 6 :)
-Be better about sharing my learning this year. (some things that I am going to be working on.. Flight Curriculum.. new Tech Challenges... and lots of global collaboration!)
But.. I think my biggest goal this year is not school related at all. I want to be caught up on bills. I know that we all struggle.. but that is one of my biggest goals this year!
Do you have goals for this year? Do you have a word of the year.. or a song of the year? Looking forward to to catching back up with my blog this year!
