Random thoughts for today
It is Monday, July 21, 2008. Holy crud, where is the summer going? What have I accomplished since school ended in June? Why do I even care?
Hmmmm, that is a good question. Is my self worth based upon concrete products of work? If I am not thinking about school on my time off am a less of a teacher? One would think the answer is simple. But, it isn't. To me top educators are always looking/listening/searching for ideas that may benefit their students. It may not be a purposeful strategy, may just be a passing thought of "this is cool" or "I could use this".
So, what comes of this pondering? I will try and keep a journal of what catches my eye during the day. A running log of "stuff I might use"...
In the mean time I will continue to help my youngest daughter after knee reconstruction, and support my firstborn with her new career path. Of course I will enjoy every moment my husband is home (travels up to 3 weeks each month).
Ahhh, I feel better!
