Well, there's no one here yet....except for my talented teaching partner, Megan (Check her out at "I teach. What's your super power?"). She designed my blog title and I love it! I'm new at blogging, but she has graciously offered to teach me some tricks along the way. As usual, I'm a work in progress but have the "moxie" to jump in with both feet.
Speaking of moxie....what is it, you ask??? Moxie is a word that entered modern lexicon via a soda advertising campaign. The soda, Moxie, chose to identify its product with rugged individualism. True or not, the word evolved into a definition which is described in a blog called "The Lexicon of Cultural Folly". It is:
1. A knack for facing adversity with unwavering optimism.
2. Energy mixed with determination.
Well, that's me in a nutshell. I'm always looking for a better way, a new idea, a different way to reach a child. I do not like to give up. I see obstacles as opportunities. Everything happens for a reason. The glass is half full. If I fall down, I get up again. If I fail, I try to learn from my mistakes. I am a work in progress.
That's why my passion is "Teaching With Moxie"! Thank you for sharing my journey with me!
