That is the big news this week. Tuesday was the start of “you will be there” time instead of “I can be there early time”, it is a slight change in perspective, but very powerful.
Now I have to be at school at a certain time and go by the bell schedule with my students instead of just coming doing what I want and then leaving. You know something, I am ready for that change and am looking forward to a fantastic year.
By the way the kids were fully of energy and seemed to enjoy being back at school. I even had 5 of my former 8th graders stop by and say “Hi”, which made me feel even better! When they come back to see you when they don’t have to, it does mean you made a difference.
This is also my first week in review for One Foot in Reality. I haven’t really had the time to write very much here, but I am encouraged by the number of people who have read what I have written this week. Here are my top 5 posts from last week (and yes I wrote more than 5 posts)
- OVERWEIGHT & OVER TIRED
- IT’S CRUNCH TIME
- WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES – 2010
- SCHOOL HAS STARTED 2010
- MY PERSONAL GOALS FOR THIS YEAR
