Over the last year there have been many new beginnings in my life and today marks another, the start of Teaching on the Run. If you are just stumbling across this page and wondering who the heck I am, read more about me here. I started my first blog several years back, but in the craziness of life I swayed away from it. I always knew I wanted to get back to it, and for the longevity, I was just waiting to get settled in my career and choose my focus.
And everything else life throws our way.
I have been pondering this post for several weeks now. I’ve stared countless hours at this screen thinking of what to write; drafting, revising and deleting words after words. In my mind I wanted this first post to be nothing but perfect. Because if it was perfect and profound you all would want to continue to come back reading no questions asked, right? I was searching for the right words, the right topic, the right length, the right everything. But what is perfect? As a teacher I preach to my students it is okay to not be perfect, that progress is more important then perfection. Yet, I sit here holding myself to a different standard, going against the words I say many times a day. This little corner of the internet I now get to call mine is not about perfection and it certainly is not about the number of views. My purpose in starting this blog is not looking for fame or recognition, rather it is about sharing myself, perfectly imperfect as it might be, and my thoughts with any of you who want to take the time to read it.
I am thrilled to be back to writing, I have loved it for as long as I can remember. I also loved meeting others in the blogging community and I cannot wait to further develop those connections.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy what is yet to come!
