“What dream do you have for yourself or for your writing? And...what are you doing to keep your dream burning brightly?”
Since I retired from public school, I believe that my dream is to stay connected with other educators and keep up with the education world. I’m afraid if I don’t, all that I have (knowledge and experience) will be lost. For me, that would be such a waste because I loved teaching.
So, I continue to write in my blog and connect my life experiences to education.
I read other blogs and see how they are connected to education.
When time and money allows, I attend education conferences.
I teach special education courses for my local university which means I have to stay current with education topics, trends and strategies.
I give presentations on education topics whenever it is possible.
I volunteer at the state park and lead school groups on hikes. I am able to share interesting information that relate to common core standards for that grade and I also get to share my love of nature.
So, now I will pass on the question. What is your dream and how are you keeping it burning? Please share.
