Time to Set Some Goals

I woke up this morning - earlier than I would have liked to on a Sunday morning - with ideas swimming in my head. Not that this is anything new for me, but I feel some things coming into focus.

I started this blog a few months ago and to date it has been a chore to post things and I finally figured out why. The blog lacked purpose and focus when I began. I think when I first put it up it was because I was so impressed with what other educators were doing and I can see tremendous personal & professional growth opportunities. But, I am going about it all wrong. I need a PURPOSE! So....

I am going to change my focus for awhile and truly use this space as a journal and hope it will turn into a collaboration. Over Christmas break I started reading Friedman's The World is Flat. Thanks to my principal, our school obtained 2 copies and we are going to read it at the same time and share thoughts. I am also going to be reflecting about what I read and post my thoughts about the book here. This will be a professional learning goal for me - independent study, reflection and hopefully collaboration with other educators. I am excited!

I stumbled upon your blog when I was looking at PDtoGo. Your blog and links are great! I will be sure to use some of your delicious links. I started using delicious with my staff on our wiki page.
