I chose the image for this post for several reasons. First, it's currently winter in Wisconsin and having snow in a picture seems somewhat fitting at the moment. But, if you've ever tried to make a really big snowball, you know how much work it is. Snow is dense! If you want to make a car-sized snowball, you're going to need vision, a plan, and lots of help.
Well, that is what I've been working on. Okay, not making snowmen, but planning change for my classroom and my colleagues! I've been thinking about the goals I want to achieve and the behaviors I'll need to engage in to see those changes happen. I've also learned about the key steps of executing a plan once you have one. Additionally, I've been working on understanding leadership better, and have some key thoughts about what I'll need to get things moving and help them stick.
It feels good to have more ideas about what I want to do and why. It feels empowering to know that I have powerful tools to help make change happen. And, to be honest, it feels a bit overwhelming to be at the beginning of it all. But it's time to rally some colleagues and begin making the push for change!
