New Year! New Attitude!

Happy New Year!  How can it be another new year?  Wow, feels like another year passed in the blink of an eye….about to have a big birthday at the end of the month.  It has really caused me to think!  Jeff and I have decided that we need to start taking some of our “bucket list” trips!  Went down the Grand Canyon in a raft for 7 nights in May and just finished a trip down the Danube River visiting Germany, Austria and Hungary.  Loved both trips for very different reasons.

I was thinking before Christmas!  What if 2015 was a year of fresh starts, new beginnings and a whole new level of gratitude?  What if we found a way to enjoy and be present each moment of time with our students?  I just changed the calendar in my classroom and thought about how easy it is to wish time would fly by and how that thought keeps us from thinking about the moment that is now.  

Are you rested and refreshed and ready to face this new year?  If you are go face it.  If not, pretend you are.  Sometimes we learn to fake it and soon it becomes real!

Mathematically yours,
