Switching Gears: An End of the Year Reflection

As my 11th full year in public education comes to a close, I find myself on the precipice of a new beginning. I am moving to a new state, resigning from my current position, and seeking a new start. This is terrifying, exciting, and crazy all at once. I think often about advice I give others, including students, when opportunities arise for them; I always tell them to take risks or they will regret it later. I think back to the chances I did not take in my late teens and early twenties because I was afraid or too nervous to step away from the comfortable. I wish, for example, that I had joined the military right out of high school. That being said, I wouldn't trade the experiences and relationships I have had for anything. This time of year is always good for reflecting on the school year's successes and for making plans to change things for the better. This time, I am just taking a bigger leap. :0)
