Like most of you, I too have set out to try some new things in 2012! With this blog I hope to combine my passion and commitment for education and a couple of goals/hobbies that are on my bucket list, photography and writing. I got the idea from a relative and fellow blogger.
Through photographs I will attempt to share with you the ins and outs of my life as a principal and my thinking on teaching and learning. I have been in education most of my life, as a student, as a parent, and as an educator. I knew from a very young age that teaching and learning was my life goal. I know first hand the power of an education! Today, I am as in love and actively engaged in providing ALL children with a quality education as I ever was. I feel privileged to be a part of such a great profession!
As for photography well, I have always had a yearning for developing my creative interests. But, I never felt very “talented” in any medium. Then, I read Carol S. Dweck’s book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, and decided to practice what I preach, a growth mindset. No one is born knowing, it takes desire and effort to learn something new.
This January I went out and bought myself a camera that I had my eye on. I have been playing with it ever since and can’t wait to use it at school on Monday. Eventually I want to take some classes, if you have any recommendations please let me know.
I hope you will share you thoughts with me and give me feedback.
Here’s to NEW BEGINNINGS. Happy New Year!
