Welcome to this brand new blog. It seems fitting that when Bonnie asked me to guest host DIAS, I reflect a bit on how I would like to run it. That reflection and subsequent research took me back to a March 11, 2007 post where Kevin Hodgson was handed the baton so to speak from The Reflective Teacher and carried on the tradition of Day In a Sentence.
It was Kevin who introduced me to blogging and Twitter. The rest is history but what a strong beginning I enjoyed then, and his mentoring and support continue to this day. Now, 3 years later, I find the opportunity to begin again with this new blog. The fact that Kevin recommended I try a separate blog for my reflections on the process of educating young minds is worth mentioning as well. So here I go, a new blog, a new year, and a new role. I am pretty excited at the prospects.
So, let’s keep the idea of new beginnings rolling with this week’s Day In a Sentence. Boil your thinking down to a sentence if possible (although we know many folks just can’t do that =O) You might like to submit an offering that reflects your thoughts on the New Year, any resolutions you might be mulling over, or any other areas of your practice you have Hopes and Dreams for that feel new.
Many thanks to Bonnie for giving me this opportunity. You might even like to try hosting a week yourself!
