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!
