Have you ever had to say the difficult thing? Practicing on the way to school, hesitating to share, and feeling nervous. I waited for that moment and I said it. Pausing,I breathed deeply and waited....choosing my words carefully and having the best intention were my focus.
Finally, one of my favorite parts of being the elder in our school is sharing ideas and mentoring strength. I am always learning, and I am celebrating our weekly team meetings. This week was extra great because we were talking with our math coach about recent changes to the standards. All four of us trust each other which is so important as we dig deeper into the curriculum. Mentoring is where my heart is. I am thankful when I am asked my opinion, and I can share 30 years of experience. Encouraging young teachers to trust their judgement and try some new strategies is a celebration every time.
I am celebrating because two weeks in a row I am able to blog on Friday evening. Some might call that strange, I call it contentment. I am thankful for joining my Saturday celebration community. I am looking forward to a beautiful, cool fall weekend.
