Everyone has their definition of success, and that is good. It's truly up to the individual to determine his or her own set of values and goals.
Personally, my vision is clear and my goals are simple.
1. I am a child of God, and a lover of Christ. I seek to listen, and follow His guidance in all that I do. In Him, and by serving him, I am a champion. Anything that separates myself from growing closer to him keeps me from ultimate greatness, and hinders the real impact that I can make in my family, in my career, and with my life goals.
2. I am a wife and mother. My life dream is for my husband and children to wake up, and call me beloved. I'm here to love them, nurture them, and help them to be all they can be. By doing this I am a champion.
3. I am a teacher. My dream and calling is to make an impact in children's lives. By teaching them, expanding their knowledge of content, and providing an example of excellence, I am a champion.
4. I am a writer. My writing helps me stay grounded, and nothing brings me more pleasure than helping others find their voice. This brings me joy. In this, I am a champion.
I am happy for others in their quest for greatness. We all are allowed to figure out our own way, and this is mine.
In this way, I am successful.

What is Success?
I'm a passionate middle grades teacher, and currently teaching 5th grade, I love all content areas because I enjoy learning, but my heart lies in ELA/Reading. I began this blog as a reflection tool, but my hope is that others might learn from my insights. Always know that with education, there will be different viewpoints. I may be passionate about my viewpoint, but I'd also love to know yours, too! Thank you for visiting, and wishing you all the best in your educational quest for ideas.
