Reflecting on 2008

What I love about being a networked teacher is the resources "out there" on the Internet that I wouldn't come across any other way. For instance, this morning one of the people in my Twitter network, Kevin, put out a tweet inviting people to participate in his Year in a Sentence project. The idea behind it is that you put into one sentence the "essence" or "theme" of your 2008. For this English teacher, that is a challenge. I mean being succinct enough to put it in one sentence and still get across the profoundness of what you've experienced seems a little daunting. On the other hand, it is a little like asking kids to come up with one sentence describing the theme of a literary work. So, after many revisions, here goes: From different dimensions and aspects of life, health, educational networks, leadership, and service, this year, for me, has been about moving from the sidelines to participating in the “game” of life.

Hi Julia
Thanks for your sentence and the mention. Folks are still welcome to come and submit, or pass along a link (as you did)
