First – Welcome to my blog! I’m not new to blogging, but this site is new for me. I have been reading about the importance of leadership reflection, and I decided to create this blog as a way to reflect along my journey. I normally spend quite a bit of time reflecting and analyzing everything, and this is my attempt to tunnel that focus into this particular area of my life.
In June 2017 I was named Digital Learning Coordinator for the school district in which I am employed. I was simultaneously thrilled, nervous, excited, and scared. The path that got me here has been filled with quite a few twists and turns, and it has definitely had some unexpected valleys that. The climb from the bottom of the valley that led me to this position was hard, and at times I wanted to quit. But I learned quite a few invaluable lessons along the way. My goal is to use those lessons to help shape me into the leader that I want to be, and the leader that I have always wanted to follow. I hope that you will follow me along this journey.
To begin, I have set time aside to blog about my experiences every other week. I don’t think it’s too much or too little given the hectic nature of my current work pace. Besides, if we don’t make time to reflect, it usually doesn’t happen. That is why I have added it to my calendar. When the reminder goes off on my phone, I will drop everything and reflect. It’s the new D.E.A.R. time! 🙂
