Today is the final day of Winter Term. I've found this trimester to be full of triumphs, but also full of challenges. I imagine that many of you had the same experience.
While I'm grateful for the opportunities for growth that challenges provide, I don't always embrace those challenges enthusiastically. Sometimes I find myself viewing them as hurdles in my way, preventing me from getting back to "normal life." Though I'll confess that I'm not sure what a "normal life" is supposed to look like!
I'm happy to be closing the grade book on this term, and I'm looking forward to the clean slate that the new trimester provides. There are plenty of blank pages left in my lesson planner book for this academic year and plenty of triumphs (and challenges) ahead. Here's to meeting them head-on with a positive attitude.
