What Would You Attempt To Do If You Knew You Could Not Fail?

I have been a teacher for 16 years and it is likely I am not even halfway thru my career. I have a long way to go, lots of experience, many ideas, and dreams I have not yet pursued.

As a little girl I always dreamed of being a teacher. I had other “dream jobs too…. I wanted to be a writer and a photographer. I never felt like it was possible to do anything with these dreams.

Until now.

Why now?

Well, there are a few things you should know about me. I love teaching, reading, writing, and learning. I love talking and sharing. I love technology, designing materials, figuring out what “works”, making connections with kids, and helping kids make connections.

At this point in my life, it just makes sense to combine my dreams, my passions, and my talents. I hope to create a blog that will serve as a way to motivate myself to keep on learning, inspire others in their teaching, and benefit the students in my future….and in yours.

I am determined to do this. Failure is not an option (Thanks A.H.!)

I hope that you will come back often to see how I develop this blog. I will need your help ~ your contributions, comments, questions, thoughts, and ideas ~ to get things rolling.

Everyone has a dream. What is your dream?


Self-made poster hanging in my classroom. I knew it was a keeper when I saw it doodled on an at-risk student’s binder.
