It has been a painfully long time since I have written in either of my blogs. The amount of dedication my classroom and students have taken this year has been mind-boggling. I know it is all worth it. My students continue to make reading progress (although quite slowly).
So what have I learned? I have learned that when given seemingly insurmountable barriers, I can climb them. If others stand in the way of progress with my students, I can walk around them. If I allow the joy from others to seep under my skin it will eventually reach my heart, healing the ache from hurt.
There is much yet to be written and plenty of time to write.
