The school year is starting today for many teachers and students around the country. After 13 years, I still get the butterflies. I used to think I was nervous about my lessons or the impending grading of assignments, but I think the butterflies are a bit different.
I think I have the butterflies because I'm excited about the untold possibilities in the coming year. With 20 Time starting its second year in my class, I'm excited to see what my students will undertake. I'm also excited to start trying some of the fun things I learned from my friends over the summer and I can't wait to see how my dedication to learning spaces is going to influence my daily routine. There are so many possibilities, that it is hard to concentrate!
Another thing I will be doing is creating a short video on my #NerdyCast to reflect on the week. I have one up already and I look forward to adding more as I really try and dive into my practices this year in an attempt to look deeper into what I'm doing and not doing. I'll still be doing longer podcasts with Tim, we just need to flesh out the schedule.
For everyone starting today, I hope you have an amazing day and I look forward to learning and sharing this school year.
