When you work in Public Education, there are two beginnings each and every year: the beginning of a new school year and the beginning of a new calendar year.
With the beginning of a new school year, we see goals, focus and a fresh start (and new non-marking gym shoes 😉) but with the beginning of a new calendar year, we see things a little differently. While we’re only a few months into the school year, so much has already happened and we have the ability to see things a little more clearly so typically, January means a reflection and refocus leading to a renewed commitment to our goals.
Here we are, at the beginning of February in the year 2017 and I am so looking forward to refocusing on this blog and starting fresh with it once again. So, with this short, but necessary post, I say, here’s to an amazing 2017, to fresh starts, and to doing our best for kids!
