I've really felt my creativity wane this year, with all the health and energy problems with which I've been dealing. I used to feel inspired and BE inspiring, and I feel sad that such a large aspect of Who I Am, has dwindled. I am used to being full of energy, ideas, and enthusiasm. But for nearly a year, it's hard to even get out of bed. I'm hoping that all the $$$ I'm spending on health care will work and will bring ME back to ME.
The more I teach, the more I realize how little I learned in my graduate program. Very little focus on child development and learning rhythms through transitional stages. So I am grateful that I have been at a school that encourages and mandates learning in these areas! I have learned so much and I am a better educator for it!
I am grateful for learning and book and the ideas that spawn from both!
