The Grass Is Green
Week 12 (of 38) – Nov. 19 to 23, 2018
In this new chapter of my pedagogical journey, I am realizing that THE GRASS IS GREEN. What do I mean by that? As crazy as things may seem OR as stressful as people may feel… THINGS ARE GOOD. I am very happy how my classes are ending this term. We had some rough moments, but I am content with our progress. I am collaborating with my colleagues and enjoying every minute of it. The conversations are exceptional and I love our resilience and determination to move forward. Finally, I can be myself in my workplace. There’s no to pretend. I feel authentic. I am making connections with those at the university, in school districts, on Twitter/Google Hangout, and other edu-communities. I love what I am learning, who I am working, and the direction we are heading in. THERE IS NO PERFECT and in fact, that’s not what I’m aiming for. I am aiming for excellence and the goods internal to the practice. I have solace knowing that my edu-experience is not unique, but a shared experience. We have good people wanting to do good things… and that’s all I can ask for.
