I'm not going to lie, this past few months, going back into the classroom have been HARD. Hard...hard...hard. But hard things aren't bad, they are what makes us who we are and for that we must be thankful.
My class has been working so hard, in so many areas and they have come so far. Sometimes we don't see clearly, when we are in the moment, and creating some space to reflect is necessary. I woke up this Sunday morning, with a thankful smile on my face. I began reflecting on the last week before break and beyond that, the past few months... and I had to share. It was too much to write and I don't think the emotion would have shown through my fingers. So I took a risk... a BIG risk for me.
I decided to create a series of short videos to chronicle the journey... breathe... it's not about me... it's about sharing our stories, celebrating our kids and shining on the bright spots. I will not be watching these, but if you do- hopefully you can find one thing that resonates, encourages or inspires you as we finish up this calendar year.
