All around me there are thousands of good initiatives and efforts. I am fortunate to work with many dedicated professionals near and far--it's amazing to think of all that good work. Yet, I'm one person, and can't be involved in all initiatives and efforts. Hence, I've outlined my professional direction for the next year, and will now direct the teaching ship in that direction.
And as far as all those other great and intriguing initiatives, I'll give them my good support, but I'll reserve my energy and time for the directions most meaningful and important related to my work as a classroom teacher. The outreach related to those events will be the writing I do that matches those efforts.
