Sick Again…

Somehow I cannot seem to get well. While it is just a little head cold this time, it is once again slowing me down. I am so glad I have my #highperformaceplanner from #brendanbruchard so that I can at least stay on track at work, and track what isn’t getting done so that I can get it done once I feel better.

When we rely on our own instincts, … Continue reading I Control My Perspective

I teach at a school that is on a 4×4 block, meaning I have all new kids tomorrow, and new classes. So daunting to have two first days in a school year, but I’ve doing this for 7 years now, and getting used to the daunting is old hat. What I am also used to is the apathy and blah I feel when it is time, after the break, to come back. This has, unfortunately led … Continue reading Reminders…already
