I've been traversing the wonderful mountain range of teaching and learning since my earliest days when I played school in the basement of the little green cape I grew up in. The range is filled with hills, small peaks, and larger mountains too. For the past twenty or so years, I've been climbing the Mt. Everest of professional peaks. It's been an arduous ascent, and only in the past few days have I neared the summit. I am so happy to be at this place, a place I've worked hard to get too and a place that's resulted due to the help of many, many colleagues, friends, and family members.
There are other peaks to climb ahead, but for a while I'll rest and enjoy this view--a good place to be as the holidays begin.
