Please remember that I am following the 2010 version of the "30 goals challenge" then I will pick up the new goals.
I could easily call this goal already done. I am currently in the last semester of my 2nd Master's degree working on my Educational Leadership certification. There is my class. This whole process of the 30 goals is a challenge in itself. There is my challenge. I am in no shape to run a marathon so instead of that I think I'll look for a 5k, fun run or walk to join. With this I will feel like I have accomplished goal #3 without cheating. "-)
Now, you might ask "How will all of these things change my teaching?" Well by getting my administrator certification I am learning how to be a better leader. The same goes for this blog. I am learning about educational technology and how to apply it to the instructional setting. As far as the 5k, I am learning that physical exercise strengthens the mind as is de-stresses our lives. As a less stressed out teacher and a stronger person, I will be able to deal with challenges my job and family place on my life daily.
