First, I have made progress in my profession as an educator. I am a unit coordinator at a high school in Manhattan. I am teaching Geometry, Chemistry and Resource (for my students with learning disabilities). Recently, I was offered a position as a facilitator for the school's monthly professional development meetings. What does this mean? I get to teach my fellow pedagogues strategies on differentiated instruction and how to support the needs of ALL students. Awesome, right!
I have also made progress in my writing. It's been a long time since I've written anything substantial. Just last week, I made myself sit down at the computer, with the door to my bedroom closed and I actually wrote about two thousand words. I was flabbergasted! All it takes is just sitting down and doing it! Who knew?
How is this post "delusional" you ask? Well, even though I have made progress, it's not the amount of progress I had hoped to achieve by this time of year. I should have finished at least one of my works in progress. I should already have owned my own property. I should have gone back to school and become an assistant principal. So many should have's. . .
