One Little Word 2019



My blog has had its ebbs and flows.  Life became a little complicated, and it was hard to know what stories I could/should share on this blog.  So much of my writing centered on family life as well as my teaching life.  Life as a foster mom and a literacy coach made me question what I had to say and who my audience would be.  I've discovered though, that I need to write just for me.  I need to write to sort my thoughts.  I need to write for my own discovery.

My One Little Word for 2018 was Embrace.  I chose that word because of all the ups and downs that came with being a foster parent as well as a parent to adult children.  Diving a little deeper into my PhD studies and trying to figure out my role in my day job as a literacy coach, I wanted to embrace the challenges and the new learning.  And for the most part, I think I did that.  Our girls were reunited with their mom in the beginning of August, I moved from coaching back into the classroom full time (teaching third grade), and taking on more classes in my PhD program.  The girls are doing well, their mom is doing well (Yay!), going back into the classroom has been a gift and helped me remember just how hard this job is and I've managed to keep afloat with classes.

But something has changed.  I find myself asking more and more questions.  It came to me today...my word had to do with something about asking questions.  I chose wonder.  There are so many things I wonder about in my teaching and learning.  I am hoping my one little word will guide me into finding some answers.  I'm sure it will lead me to more questions and deep down, I hope it will reignite my blogging life. 

Here's to a great 2019!  Happy New Year!

  1. I wondered what was going on with your family. Glad to hear an update! And so glad the girls had a loving mom and dad while their other mom was not able to care for them. What a gift you gave to their family!

  3. Julie,
    I had forgotten we were embracing the same OLW last year. This year’s OLW choice suits you just fine! I can you hear you replying to one of my many “brainstorms” now, “I don’t know. Let’s try it and see what happens.” This shows not only your openness to wonder, but also your willingness to embrace the uncertainty of wonder! A WONDERful combination!

  4. HI Julie,
    I came across your blog listed in AJ Juliani's "30 Day Challenge." Part of my 30 day challenge is not just to 're-ignite blogging' - yes, it's hard to be consistent - but to also read and comment on the blogs of other educators. We can learn so much from our colleagues. Best to you as you "Wonder" in 2019 and kudos for going back to third grade.

A recent survey report shows that most of the academic writing services which provide Assignment, Essay, Dissertation, Thesis or Paper Help to the students are using Paraphrasing tools by which they re-write the same paper again and again, although with the use of these tools you can easily get passing marks, but if you really want to get HD grades in your Clinical Reasoning Cycle Assignment you have to hire an expert like myassignmenthelp.com tutors.
