My theme for the year: Service

So it’s March and I’m barely coming up with my theme for the year. Many educators around the world come up a word that they are focusing on for the year. Unlike them, my year didn’t start off with this huge epiphany. Through conversations and interactions with my colleagues, friends and family….I was able to fully grasp my goal for the year, SERVICE.

From an educator viewpoint, one would think that I would serve my teachers and students all year round. Yes that is true, but it’s a little more in depth than that. I have been a huge advocate for helping students and teachers to be successful in the 21st century by utilizing technology.

So I decided to embark on a journey. I decided to cultivate a training for my classified staff called: Become a GooRu. What it consists of, is a program designed to teach them on how to use G Suite Apps for Education. I love teaching people how simple technology can make their lives. In doing this, I want to teach the classified staff the basics to help make their daily tasks easier. From just introducing this training it spiraled into training other administrators and hopefully into training students on a grander scale.

I wrote in a blog about 8 months ago that I wanted to get back to my passion. The passion of spreading technology. So here I am ready for the journey ahead.

The other main aspect of my life, my Health & Wellness Coaching side. This is actually a newer venture. One that I started because I knew I was not balancing my work-life situation. I was 90% work and 10% life. Let’s be honest, I was faking it while making it. I was achieving goals, hitting deadlines, but was getting so discouraged with how I felt physically and it was taking an emotional toll on me.

So I decided that I would sign up as a coach, to not only get a discount, but had the ability to later help serve others. Fast forward 8 months and I’m able to help 4 other women. I was able to give them the tools I’ve used to help me drop 25lbs, 2 pant sizes and give them tools for a healthier life. Serving them has been great, it’s given me a different purpose that I am passionate about. Allowing people to know their worth and strive to be the best they can be, daily.

Im looking forward to the rest of 2019 and seeing how God is going to use me in both of these roles.

As many in the education world are either approaching Spring Break or have had it…I ask you to make sure you take the time to reflect on the past three months and set goals for the rest of the year.

I can’t wait to see what you do!
