So, I haven't posted since January 25th. That's almost 2 full months...
I'll be honest, I haven't felt like writing. When I visited with many other administrators after I got my new job, they told me to be aware of February and March. These can be some difficult times and motivation and self-confidence seem to fall away. Man, were they right! There have been some trying situations and the weather isn't nice. I leave for work in the dark and return in the dark.... I'd get home and hang with my family for a while, then turn on the TV and just veg. I wasn't taking time to blog, tweet, or read any educational books. I wasn't making myself a better educator.
Well, I've decided not to let myself get down. I'm going to focus on the good things. I've started to visit more classrooms again, rather than getting lost in the paperwork. I've started getting to work a little earlier to get some of the paperwork done. I'm even going to teach a lesson in the Algebra 1 class in the next couple of weeks. I'm excited about that!
Just wanted to share what's been going on. I hope to start writing more regularly as well.
