The path of teaching/learning is always filled with new surprises. What you think may be simple, might be complex. And visa versa. There's a lot of unpredictability on this road--a small road compared to that of others who lead hospitals, run for office, or work to keep peace in troubled political spots, but a challenging road nonetheless.
Having a growth mindset at times can be a problem as seeing the promise of change and readiness to try out new endeavor is often met with challenge. So, as I'm redirected yet again, I'll take a break from innovation and change for a few days and focus on the schedule at hand, a pattern of caring for children in my charge with as much positivity and good work as possible. Onward.
