Last year at this time I had revisited my blog after quite a hiatus hoping to begin creating a journal of my newest adventure. I had returned to my previous school after four years to serve as their principal. With great faith, I returned to a place I loved and wanted to see continue to succeed hoping I could have an impact.
Hoping I would remember what blogging was all about and finally getting into my account, I tinkered with the settings and design. It had been a while and my tastes had changed, although I am still not satisfied. Soon enough, I had quickly abandoned it again for more pressing needs - my family, my job...
Well, here it is the eve of 2017 - well, almost - and I am yet again making another attempt. Perhaps this year I will stick with it. No, not perhaps - I will. My goal - at least once a week. What will I share? My leadership journey, perhaps a few personal tidbits here and there.
This last year and a half I have been greatly influenced by all the eduheros on Twitter. They have served as my motivation and spurred my continued learning. They inspire me to stay true to why I became an educator and the reason I will not throw in the towel on my blog. When I am feeling discouraged, I can participate in a Twitter chat and feel rejuvenated and inspired. It is reassuring to know I am not alone. I may not have it all figured out and know that I really never will, but will continue to push myself to become the best wife, mother and teacher I can be.
