2016 brought me a lot of challenges, which led to a lot of change in 2017. But, because I was brave and "dove in" to my gut feelings about a lot of things, 2018 is about to bring a lot of changes again! Even though I have just moved to Switzerland, I have decided to move on again in July. I am joining a team which I look up to and model a lot of my current practices off of. I am so excited to learn from and collaborate with this forward thinking group of colleagues. And, happily, back to the sun!
As a lot of other teachers on Twitter and blogs this month, I have chosen one word for 2018. A broader guidance through the year, as opposed to the standard resolutions to try to stick to. My one word for this year is open.
Open-minded (first one that comes to mind as a PYP teacher, of course)
Open doors for my students, coworkers, and others
Open with my sharing
Open to new experiences
Open to change
Open to routine
It is not that I feel like I am doing a bad job at being open. I just want it to serve as a reminder to myself to always continue to be open. And hopefully to pass this onto my students and those around me while doing it.
