Being Thankful After Thanksgiving
Over the Thanksgiving Day holiday, we all give thanks for the good things in our lives. As the holidays rush by, the semester draws to a close, and things seem to get hectic, I offer the following suggestions for what we as Globaloria educators can be thankful for as well.
BE THANKFUL FOR...
the hard work performed by our motivated and exceptional students.
the hard won victories of our less than motivated students.
the added opportunities to learn new skills and techniques in Flash.
the occasional frustrations and pains that signal true growth.
the opportunity to be a part of data-driven research.
the reports; reminding us how it feels to be a learner and contributor.
the new friends made around the state, country, and world.
the constructive support we offer each other.
all the good we see in our results.
all we learn from the setbacks and stumbles we experience
Thanks for the opportunity to share my voice.
Until next time the soapbox is yours,
