A moment to reflect…

Pause for a moment to reflect…

Saturday was the last class of my central office course to earn my certification in educational administration.  What a feeling of accomplishment!  When I began the program I had doubts because I was teaching at a not-for-profit, private school rather than a public school and felt I lacked some of the knowledge many of my classmates had.  Through the program I learned quite a bit, gained confidence, met some wonderful people, and discovered more about myself.

Five qualities I revealed about myself:

  1. Establishing and building relationships is a strength for me
  2. Finding the right fit where to teach makes all the difference…I’m where I belong!
  3. I have a slight obsession with to-to lists
  4. My diverse experiences are an advantage to me
  5. Pushing myself out of my comfort zone helps me grow

It is important to reflect on the challenges we face, and what we have learned from them.  What challenge have you faced?  What did you discover about yourself?

I’m a mother of three beautiful children who have given me the strength in life to be determined in reaching my goals. I am a teacher certified in English and Special Education and truly enjoy going to work every day. I recently completed my requirements to become certified in school district leadership to make an impact on a much larger scale. I have had my fair share of blood, sweat, and tears, but the entire journey has made me grateful and appreciative of all that I have. One strategy I found helpful was to find something every day to be thankful for---focus on the positives in life! My goal with this blog is to do just that---focus on those “little” moments with the hope to inspire others.
