This past Wednesday, my mom and I went to the Taylor Swift concert in Shreveport, Louisiana. What else can I say about it other than it was simply wonderful! It was both of our first concert of hers to attend. If I ever get the opportunity to attend another, I wouldn’t turn it down. So, that explains the title of this post. Style is one of my favorite songs on the 1989 album. I actually had a little outfit malfunction when we got to Shreveport. Have you ever had a pair of jeans that are terribly painful due to your forgetting to take them out of the dryer before they dried all the way? That was me. They just weren’t giving. So, when we got to Shreveport, we stopped by Loft and I snagged this romper. I already know that it will be one of my most worn items for spring and summer.
Other than attending my first ever Taylor Swift concert, I also crossed another HUGE accomplishment off of my list. Friday (yesterday) was the last day of my first year as a teacher. At our last faculty meeting of the year, the faculty was asked to reflect on the year. We were asked if we were pleased with ourselves. My answer? No, I’m not 100% pleased with myself. I’m not 100% satisfied with myself but I am 100% proud of myself. I think that in order to continue growing as an educator, I should never get to a point where I’m satisfied with my teaching. I’m not being hard on myself because let’s get real…it was my first year! I was told by another teacher at the beginning of the school year that I would do everything differently my second year than I did my first. Your first year is a learning year. It’s a growing year (as all years are). I’m still learning my personality in my classroom. Yes, there are numerous things that I will change but I think that’s what makes being an educator so exciting. If something doesn’t work, change it. If something doesn’t go as planned, change it. If the students aren’t as engaged as you thought they would be after you spent 2 hours on a PowerPoint, change it. I’m looking forward to change. I’m embracing change and I’m looking forward to continuing on this journey.
Have a wonderful weekend and Memorial Day!
