Since I started this late I have to catch up to letter D. When I think about my life the most inspiring things to me are my children, my husband, and teaching. Those three things have taught me so many life lessons and have contributed to what each letter of the A-Z Blogging Challenge stand for.

A-Z Blogging Challenge
A- Adventure Each day as a mother of two boys and a teacher of second grade I take on adventure. I look at the excitement in my students eyes when they try a new challenge, or take the plunge to try something new. I think as a mother and a teacher you have to be adventurous, explore with you children and students and learn together.
B- Belonging Creating a community where all students feel like they belong and can be successful.
C- Communicate I try to communicate with my students what I expect them to accomplish, that I believe in them, and that they can truly do anything they put their mind to.
D- Determination If you have ever read Patricia Polacco's book Junkyard Wonders, it defines determination. The story brought tears to my eyes in front of my students, and reminded me that all things are possible if you put your mind to it.
