The choice to blog
I created my blog last year during the Encompass Summer Institute in June 2013. I have not posted since then:( This past year I have experience a lot of changes...moving with a family of 4...ugh!, leaving my position at one building as a coach to work for my school district as an instructional coach and servicing a variety of teachers, working on different projects, creating and implementing professional development and completing other tasks. With all this change I feel the need to capture it and use it as a reflection tool. I have learned and come to appreciate reflection, both personally and professionally This week I am again attending Encompass's Summer Institute and have made a decision....I will start blogging on a regular basis!! I feel a sense of relief...after talking to many Encompass fellows about their experiences and their own personal choice to blog, I'm not scared to write about my thoughts. I am choosing to blog for myself and use it as a reflection tool. I want to better myself personally and professionally and I know that I will make mistakes along the way...I just hate to make mistakes a second time. So I am hoping that by blogging and capturing my thoughts and experiences that I learn and grow.
