So I'll admit apparently my eight years of teaching middle school has rubbed off on me.
I still chuckle when someone says the word "duty," I still find it funny to throw in a "your mom" joke every now and again, and apparently I still get zits.
I wear stress on my face.
I'm starting a new job, in a new distinct, with new responsibilities. I have a "to do" list a mile long and so, so much to learn. I'm stressed and it shows on my face, literally.
Regardless of all the stress is a palpable excitement. To be able to dive into work that I love in the area of curriculum. To begin a transformation from the ground level. Communicate a vision of where we can go and marvel at the possibilities. I'm stoked.
Every morning I'm overwhelmed at the possibilities and excited by them in the exact same way. I am hopeful for the best but excited for the hidden learning opportunities.
Bring on 2012-13!
If you have goals you set for yourself this upcoming year. Please post a link to your blog post in the comments. I'm working on developing my goals outside of surviving....
