“Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”― A.A. Milne
I think I have it. I have been obsessing for awhile about how to say goodbye to my blog. It is time. I don't want to say goodbye until I have a place to send you, my loyal readers, to though. I will have that new place next weekend. For now, for you and for me, it seems like a great time for some reflection and gratitude. I am truly grateful for the life and career changer being named the 2011 Minnesota Teacher of the Year has been. I think I just might spend the rest of my life thanking people for the great opportunity to make my classroom so much bigger than I had ever imagined it could be. I have always been curious about limits, especially the ones we put on ourselves. I had no choice in this but to embrace the advice from Dr. David Walsh. He told me to "walk through every door that opens for you" and I did. I am a better person for it and braver indeed. I have been given a new sense of confidence in the work that I do. Thank you for that!
