I have been so caught up in the huge amount of support for my last blog post, that I forgot to mention that I am officially in New Hampshire. Sitting in my hotel room. About to head off to our first event with the Heinemann Fellows. As I wrote about earlier, there is certainly a mix of emotions as I get ready to begin our work. And overwhelmingly, at this particular moment, I am just excited. Excited to learn from these people, to be inspired by these people, to be surrounded by passion that drives us to better ourselves as teachers and as people.
I am also incredibly excited to share the learning and growing that I will do over the next few days with anyone who might happen to read the upcoming posts. I know that when I look back at these posts later, I will see evidence of how far I will have come. Because right now, in this moment, I know that I can do so much more and I believe that being a part of the Heinemann Fellows will help me to begin to do that.
So here I go, off to our very first event!
