Well it's been an interesting year, to be honest an exhausting year. Our school district took on many initiatives this year, NEASC, Atlas Rubicon, UbD, DDM's and BaselineEdge/Teacher evaluation just to name a few. I found myself just trying to stay focused on all expectations and deadlines and I have to admit it was difficult to keep a positive perspective. I am hoping the opportunity to step away for a few months will help rejuvenate me and many of the teachers that I work with each day that give so much to their students and classes. I do consider myself a life-long learner and wanted to attend the ISTE conference this month, but have decided to follow it online this week. Additionally, I will be teaching a few graduate classes this summer and taking one.
So for now, my biggest decision for the next few weeks will be which book should I read next while sitting poolside or at the beach!
