When You Don't Understand

There are some areas of school life I don't understand well.

I've tried to interact with these areas to little success, yet I want to understand the details well to better my craft.

In the year ahead, while I focus on the mainstay of my position,  I'll make the time to observe these areas from afar. I'll listen, take notes, watch, reflect, and analyze. Then in a year's time, I'll think about what I noticed and how that might affect my craft in new and improved ways.

We won't always understand every detail of the work we do. There will be areas that lead us to question, observe, and wonder, and making the time for that investigation will help us to do our work with greater depth and care. Onward.
