Baby Steps...


Today it happened. I won the Powerball Lottery. Just kidding. That would have been nice, though.

Today I actually created my first product for Teachers Pay Teachers.

I am feeling excited, nervous, anxious, proud, and maybe even a little bit scared. But most of all, I feel encouraged and energized. I am accomplishing something I've talked about doing for several years now. I'm learning new things. A LOT of new things. Many of my google searches are now starting with the phrases, "What is..." and "How do I..." and that's a GOOD thing! I love to learn, and I truly feel that by frequently putting myself in positions where I am forced to learn new things, I'm becoming a better teacher, author, and creator.  I'm experiencing firsthand what it feels like to learn things that are mostly foreign to me. I can reflect on what it is that my brain is doing while taking the new information in, processing it, assimilating it to things I already know, and learning--truly learning--it by putting the information to use. Isn't that what we as teachers hope to help our students achieve?

It's early in the game, but I feel good. I can't wait to get this TpT store up and running, continue this blogging journey, keep learning, and see where all this takes me!
