I'm back! Not that it is a big deal because I don't have a huge blog following. I want to commit to blogging but I have struggled with finding my blogging "voice." I have realized in recent years that despite being loud and having what appears to be a very outgoing personality - I struggle, and I mean really struggle, with social anxiety. I know it stems from a core of personal insecurities but it sucks because it means that I avoid situations that would probably be a lot of fun! For the past 2 years I have sworn that I am going to Vegas for the TPT conference and then both years I chickened out. Blogging has also caused me anxiety. How do I put myself out there to share myself and my classroom? I get wonderful feedback in my TPT store but I continue to "hide." In an attempt to get comfortable in my own skin I have made a goal to try and step out of my comfort zone a bit. I have not been on any form of social networking so I have just joined the "Instagram" world and I love it!!! Since it is summer vacation I have only been posting personal photos but that's okay and I figure I will just naturally ease into sharing more educational posts. I have made it a goal to blog once a week - no excuses! I am getting ready to start my 23rd year of teaching and I still love my job! I am excited about sharing my passions with you! The truth is - I am a complete goofball! I love to be silly and I am full of energy so get ready for the ride!
Bye for now,
