So what am I learning? First, the act of reflection never loses its power. No matter where you are in any career, you are a human being, created with the power and will to create and make meaning! So, upon entering my 20th year of teaching and learning, I am going deeper into the woods of writing. This is a dense, complex forest. Sometimes its hard to see and you have to feel your way through, making your own path. Part of my path as a writer has been continuing to blog about my learning. What can you teach me? If you write, please share your struggle and lonely journey. In our age of technology, it does not need to be a path of solitude. We have enough teaching solitude in our classrooms (not that I don't adore spending my days with the little people.) Please jump into the conversation! Even if you are not so sure of your online presence, take a risk. If you have the courage to engage on Facebook, Twitter, email, Instagram, heck, texting, then take a leap to share your learning in these contexts. This is real reading and writing people. We have this opportunity to share all we do for 180 days in our mini communities. Don't be afraid to celebrate your amazing journey through the woods.
