I’ve learned a few things the last several years in my coaching role, much of what I’ve learned is by trial and error and making mistakes. I believe that making mistakes is the precipice for how we learn and that through struggle and perseverance we can accomplish anything. This is the mindset that is critical to growth. I’ve also learned that beyond all else, teachers enjoy partnering with another set of eyes and hands in a classroom to find the instructional path that will be a crucial fit for their learners. “We do not learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.” John Dewey

A few personal tidbits when I’m not working:
…enjoy spending quality time with my husband Ryan and our wonderful sons: Braden, Bryson and Bosley
…love the outdoors: hiking, running and relaxing on the lake
…catch up on my PLN #educoach and twitter feed
…college football: proud supporter of Florida State Seminoles: Nole Nation
…exercising: there’s nothing like a rush of endorphins, it doesn’t matter how, just move your body!
