July Reads

After the hubbub of June and the reality that I'm delivering professional development most of August, I realized that July was my month to relax and do absolutely nothing. I've taken a break from social media (mostly) and have been focused on resting, reading, and spending time with my family. Here's a rundown of what I've read in July.

One Year Later

I've had this blog for a year now. In trying to get my thoughts down for this post, I keep thinking back to where I was one year ago. Having this space has surely made me more reflective and confident, and I've grown as as a result. Here's a quick rundown of the lessons a year of blogging has taught me:

-Pursue your passions

-Take risks

-Be curious

-Make your mark

-Listen

-Appreciate your talents

-Choose kind

-Choose the cone

-Fail big

-Say no every once in a while

-Above all else, always stick with your buddy.

I started Classroom Quests not really knowing what would become of this space, and I admit that I'm still am trying to figure it out. But I like it. And I think I'll keep at it.

Thanks for reading.
