It took me a few weeks to decide on my word for 2023. I wanted it to be a word I could live in every aspect of my life.
I wanted it to be a word I am intentionally living into in the personal, professional, mental and spiritual areas of my life.
As I was doing my self-work, I began thinking about my need to slow down. Not just in my calendar or my schedule, but within my mind. One way that I slow down and I focus and “zone-in” is when I am being creative-when I am thinking through my creative process. That’s when I notice I slow down and breathe slowly. Move intentionally.
But ☝🏽, it doesn’t have to be a deep and huge process, it’s when I’m thinking of things in life differently and outside the box. My creativity doesn’t have to be a lavish and a huge thing in 2023.
I’m so excited to dig into ways I want to live my word and I am excited about my journey!
Hello fellow teachers and friends! This is my second time setting up a blog. Don't laugh!! I hope that I can keep it up! It is definitely something that I have been wanting to do for a long time. So here it goes! I’ve was in the classroom for 13th years as an elementary school teacher. It is amazing to think that! I can't believe that I have taught four years in first grade, seven years in second grade, and two years in fifth grade! The bulk of my teaching was in the state of Virginia and the rest in Georgia. My 13 years teaching have taught me a lot about authentic teaching, life long learning and the dreaded state testing all while adjusting to a higher grade level. I truly feel that those years upped my level teaching in ways that I never could have imagined! I am now an Instructional Coach! This blog will be my journey. Hopefully you will stick with me!

Love creative! My word of 2023 is gentle- something I want to be more of for myself and for others.
