After my “Whirlwind” post yesterday, a wonderful educator, colleague and friend (@emilysb1) retweeted my post adding her own twist. I felt immediately inspired and grateful, as I always do when working with Emily (and so many other wonderful educators) because she added an element I had not thought of.
I had been viewing the 30 days with some hesitation…maybe 30 opportunities to fail at being focused (and then I could write about the necessity of failure). Yet, here was Emily, so positively turning it into an exercise of gratitude. And so I write with gratitude to all of the educators who inspire me each day, particularly those like Emily who are able to think deeply, reflect and always have time for the process.
