Where do you find your inspiration? At the end of the school year, I reflect on my practices and think about how I can make them better for the future. Sometimes these reflective practices continue into summer and bear fruit in the new school year while other times my ideas die on the vine and I stop thinking about work until the end of summer. I am determined to make the choices and changes to bear fruit this year. How will I do this? To begin with, I have found that while stressed, I tend to eliminate the good and healthy practices I had at one time established. I am using this summer break as an opportunity to reinvest in myself. I am doing this by: Returning to healthy eating habits (paleo) Beginning to exercise again Spending quality time with my friends and family Focusing on my spiritual growth Spending time working on my professional development I have already started seeing results. I've lost several pounds by eating healthier and exercise. I feel more connect
I have been teaching for 15 years in the elementary school setting. I would like to explore how to grow and change for the betterment of myself, my family, my students, and community.
