Where did I go for the second half of 2018? Well, the state of Virginia sent me a letter (actually an email) that said (and I’m paraphrasing) “you have six months to take two classes to complete your certification”. What? I thought I had three years! Well, two years had passed in the blink of an eye and I was starting the third year. Whoops. Anyway, long boring story short, I had to take two undergraduate courses: World History and Introduction to Economics. I spent the first half of the school year going to work, teaching (obviously), planning, grading (sometimes), and reading and studying for these two classes. I survived! I made an A in history and a B in Economics. I have my life back and am committing to blogging again!
My goal for 2019 is to grow. I want to continue to learn more about teaching my new grade level (4th grade) and about teaching gifted learners. I want to read more for pleasure. I want to write some pieces that truly impact others. I want to travel.
What are some of your commitments for 2019? How do you want to grow? I’d love to read about your thoughts in the comments!
