Remember why you started

A New Challenge


I really let this blog wither on the vine this year, for many reasons, BUT I miss taking time to blog. I miss the connections and feeling of sharing beyond my face-to-face reach.

“If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.” – Henry David Thoreau

I began blogging after my first year of teaching, when I was grappling with who I wanted to be as a teacher. Now, a few years later, I am hoping to get back on a blogging roll as I take on another new challenge: I will begin the next school year at a new school in a new role – Instruction Coach.

I am beyond excited about this coming new challenge. Over the past few years I have taken on more calls to be a teacher-leader and have come to realize that working with the amazing adults who choose teaching as a profession can be just a rewarding as working with the students we all touch.


  1. Laura,
    Congratulations on your new upcoming position! I will continue to follow your blog, and I am sure your PLN will tweak and grow as you meet many fine instruction coaches to add. You will be great!

    Welcome back to blogging!


    • Thanks Denise! I posted to my blog again today, so maybe I am really back this time?!? I loved reading your most recent post, and I hope you are truly enjoying your adventurous life!
