Sitting here, hunched over my computer I am reminded why I enjoy the agonizingly detailed and complicated work that I v-ol-u-n-t-e-e-r to do within the writing project is amazingly valuable. Gathering here in beautiful Denver with a handful of other talented teachers has proven to be just the motivation I needed to really rekindle the love I have for this kind of work.
There’s always something a little bittersweet about leaving the comforts of home – missing my boys and the way being with them makes my belly do a little flip – and then, ironically, leaving the group of people who somehow have gone from strangers to friends, to an extended learning family as well.
It’s with renewed vigor and excitment that I think ahead about the exciting work that we can accomplish!!
