I think I came across the 30 Goals Challenge at a very appropriate time for me and I’m really excited to have become part of it. This past year has been quite difficult (have a read at my recent post here) and I’ve been looking for ways to re-inspire myself, so the #30GoalsEdu is a real blessing! A big thank you to Shelly and the amazing community of teachers for sharing their ideas.
So, defining my moment…
Reflection is one of the keys to the future, going back a bit to see what worked and what didn’t. I spent a lot of time reflecting, sometimes by myself, sometimes with others (to whom I am eternally grateful for their insightful observations and putting up with me!) and this process has helped me reach a decision:
This is my moment to move forward.
Pack my bags with all my rights and wrongs and head towards a bright, new future, one full of inspiration.
Taking baby steps at the moment, but this journey has begun:
I closed the door to negative people. The whole world is in a crisis, constantly moaning about it cannot change it. I try and look at the positive things instead, whenever, wherever I find them.
I continued learning. I took up again the two language courses I’d put on hold and started a course on design media. Every day is definitely a school day!
I rejoined the world of social media. How awesome is the ELT community? Extremely awesome.
I’m going through options for PD and will hopefully soon start another TESOL course.
I just keep moving forward!
