Getting My Sea Legs Back

I used to get seasick. I'd rock on those waves, stagger back and forth a bit, and then--finally--settle myself by looking at the horizon, the distant spot where the water meets the sky.

That's what my first week back to school was like.

  • I was rocked: good, but long, PD days got me thinking about new strategies and tools. 
  • I staggered: still can't sleep well the few nights before school starts.
  • I settled: I looked on the horizon and could envision these current students improving their literacy skills.
I look forward to a year filled with literacy, critical thinking, and purposeful creation. 

This pirate has his sea legs back. Ahoy!
