Currently January 2013

In light of my blogging resolution this year, I'm linking up to Farley's Currently party. I've seen these on pretty much every teaching blog for months, but I've only just figured out how to edit my own. Forgive me, it's been a busy year! ;)

I've chosen the word "Focus" as my word for 2013. It's good for me to have this reminder to step back when I'm overwhelmed (and I seem to get this way often) and ask myself what's really important. It helps me keep my priorities straight and let go of things I can't control. It's like my one word version of the Serenity Prayer. Focus on what I can change and let get of the rest.


  1. Nice to meet you through the Currently! I also miss the View, and LOVE chai lattes. Maybe I need one now as well...

  2. I love your OLW! I definitely need more foucs! Found you on the Currently, glad you linked up!

  3. I think the New Year is even better for teachers because we have a chance to focus on all of the goals we had at the beginning of the year. We tend to let those go. So you OLW of "focus" is perfect! =)

    I am so happy to be your newest follower. I would love for you to hop over and visit me when you get the chance. =)
