The beginning of March/the end of March #sol19

In a previous post, I wrote about everything that had happened to me since last March.  I decided to do a spin-off on that format today.  Today’s slice also reflects the Yesterday/Today format that I also enjoyed.  However, today I’m writing about everything that has happened to me since the beginning of the month.

At the beginning of March, I was eagerly anticipating the 2019 Virginia State Reading Association conference.

At the end of March, I was proud of the amazing conference in Norfolk and the opportunities for professional development provided at the conference.

At the beginning of March, I wondered how my Virginia Cavaliers would fare in the NCAA tournament.

At the end of March, I watched the ‘Hoos make it to the Final Four after an unbelievable game with Purdue.

At the beginning of March, I wondered if the cold weather would ever cease.

At the end of March, we had a couple of days of 70+ degree weather.  However, I think the cold temperatures will be back tomorrow:(

At the beginning of March, I had just started teaching a five-week online class.

At the end of March, the class is coming to an end and it was another wonderful experience.  I loved the insights shared by all of the students and I enjoyed watching their posts on the discussion boards evolve each week.  They really did a fantastic job of exploring the topic of dyslexia and how they could use the information from the class in their own classrooms.

At the beginning of March I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to complete the challenge with everything else that was going on. 

At the end of March, I achieved my goal of slicing every day.  Some days were better than others, but I wrote every day.  I managed to show up even on those days when the words were hard.  I also discovered so many folks who inspired and encouraged me throughout the challenge. 

As I reflect on March, I realize that it’s been a pretty awesome month!

    I love this format Jennifer. It makes me think about the power of beginning/end thinking/reflecting with students…As a Charlottesville resident and mom of two UVA students I can relate to some of your beginning and end of month sentiments (Hoos and weather- soooo cold today!). Go Hoos!
