Six months later my running list of blogs that I would like to write grows longer, but the time to carve out to actually write the entries grows shorter and tighter each day. So here's the list of blogs (topics) that I would like to write if I had time to blog:
Risk taking - how taking risks can bring about big results and make one's life more enriching.
Genuine enthusiasm - how the kind word, the sincere greeting, the genuine inquiry and enthusiasm about life is contagious and betters the world
Missing Dixie - how the positive, effective leadership of our now retired principal is so very needed at a time of low morale, budget cuts, disorganization and non-communication
New Year's resolutions - always a good entry to set one on the right course for the new year
Teacherprenuership - the idea that teachers develop their pedagogical talent, “sell” their expertise, and find innovative solutions to challenges facing their students
Digital footprints - making our stamp on the digital world, making connections both personally and professionally in the digital age
NaNoWriMo - the National Novel Writing Month and how I once again attempted to get thoughts on the page (I made it to 5000 words)
The Power of Small - a book that I am reading about how little things make the difference
Thanksgiving - a list of 30 days of things I was thankful for during the month of November
Information and Technology Essential Standards - the new document to integrate information and technology into the core curricula and how teacher librarians need to push in to the classroom and push back those that don't get our role in education
Growing up with Elizabeth - how life as a mother puts everything else in perspective
So perhaps over the winter break and in the new year, I will once again reorganize my life, break out my list, crack my knuckles and get to typing and posting new blog entries.
