The road less traveled

Sunday, August 06, 2017

Today, on my virtual world walking tour, I reached:
"St Michael's Mount, a unique and historic small tidal island in Mount's Bay in Cornwall, England. The island, which is managed by the National Trust and is home to about 35 people, is linked to the town of Marazion by a man-made causeway of granite setts, passable between at low tide."

I cannot seem to tear my eyes away from the granite setts, there is something comforting about this causeway. The unique placement of the rocks makes me long to touch the rocks, inhale deeply the salt in the air and feel the sea breeze against my skin. The location at the end intrigues me and seems fitting as a new school year begins.

I am beginning another adventure for the 31st time in my teaching career on a path that is unknown. I am reminded of Frost's poem, The road not traveled, education is struggling to keep up with the demands of our world. Different is necessary. Different is scary. I pray I am up for the challenge this school year brings. To have faith and not be afraid to try something new as I step out on the road less traveled.

    What a wonderful place to which you have traveled. It sounds as if you have remarkably wise teaching skills. You know that teaching and learning are changing and I bet you know what is worth keeping from the past and what is worth embracing in the now and what is worth inquiring into for the future.

    With all best wishes!

    Venturing onto a new and untried path can be challenging, even scary. Unless we have teachers like you who are brave enough to venture onto that new path, we will continue to get the same old, same old and miss the mark of meeting the new challenges our world faces.

    I've seen first hand your ability to teach, lead, and to venture into new paths as our team has tried new betas. Your students are lucks to have you.

    You are one of the strongest bravest ladies I've met on SP. I believe this is just another beta in life and you will find what is best through the daily challenge. Your students are lucky to have you. I have seen your Teaching capabilities 1st hand. If they make right decisions they will "long to touch the rocks" you lay before them, and your desire to make their education as strong as the granite leading to St Michael's Mount, will give them great confidence and much "comfort" they will need and use in the future. Bless you for taking the road less traveled.
