Batter Up!Before reading any further, take 55 seconds and watch the video below.
I don't know about you, but that video blows my mind! This post was inspired by my friend Nick (@TheNerdyTeacher) and his latest post, #NothingButPositiveTweetsThisWeek. In the post he encourages us to be positive this week and to only share the great things that are happening in our classrooms and education.
These words of encouragement couldn't have come at a better time. It's just that time of year that we all face in education. It's that stretch of days from January to spring break where the weather is gloomy, there are very few days off, it's standardized test season, kids are tired, teachers are tired, and everyone is praying for a snow day.
I think many of us feel like the guy in the video above. We have all of these things we are trying to keep in motion and as soon as we take care of one thing, here comes something else. Let me just say, "It's going to be okay."
This is your time to shine. This is your time to do what others see as impossible.
Turn on your "walk-up" music and step up to the plate.
