There have been times in my life where I've heard over and over that struggles build character, build strength. I literally at one time had a sign on my fridge that said character sucks...it was what I needed to get through hard times and looking back, I can chuckle over that sign!
Things have been tough and I expect that it'll be slow to get going in a new job, in a new community, etc. But I do feel good and I really value that I have this opportunity. Is it comfortable? Oh no....it requires me to think in different ways, react in different ways, and create in different ways.
I pray that I'm making a difference to my students, that I'm reaching them. There are days where I question that. I have a very tough class, possibly the toughest I've ever had. Right now, I question a lot about what I'm doing and is it the right approach. Right now, I just need to keep giving it my all, and keep doing my best.
But for now, I take each day at a time...
