This is my first blogging experience! My friend and colleague encouraged me to join this challenge. As a K-5 literacy coach, interventionist, wife, and mother of three I am very sure that it will be very difficult to squeeze one more thing into my already very crazy, busy life. With that being said, I am always up for a challenge and am always encouraged to be pushed to "do better", especially in my professional life.
I encountered by first roadblock before I even began to write. Yes, I was stumped with just coming up with a name for my blog! My "half-way done" idea, came from a feeling I experience just about every day. I am always working to complete a project at work or home and running to the next sporting event or practice without fully completing anything...or at least I feel that way. The metaphor of a revolving door comes to mind, as I am running through what seems like a million data conferences, running to dance class, preparing March is Reading month activities, cheering at a basketball game, reading the last chapters of my book for my book club, preparing my lesson for tomorrow, fixing dinner, doing my last few running records, helping a teacher plan her lessons for tomorrow, washing up all the dishes and folding laundry at the same time, while listening to a webinar on how to prepare our students for our state standardized test...oh yeah, I forgot about helping out with long division, baths and talking to my husband about his day.
Wow, quite often at the end of a day, I wonder, "Did I get anything done today?"
