Dreaming is Free

on February 5, 2013

dreamboard

My school district believes very much in college readiness, in getting students to set goals for themselves and work toward those goals.  To, “Begin With the End in Mind.”   Every year, schools all over the district have a Dream Board Night.  Families come and create dream boards.  Everyone puts down on paper their goals and their dreams.  Even the teachers.  This year, all the teachers at my school have been taking turns sharing boards at every Monday  staff meeting.  Today, I shared mine.  I have it hanging in my office so I can look at it and remember why I am doing the things that I do.  So that when the going gets tough, I am reminded that all the hard work will pay off one day.   As a visual person, it is very powerful.

I have career goals (to publish a children’s book, work at the Smithsonian and become High/Scope certified), travel goals (Yosemite and Yellowstone with my family),  leisure goals (running and app writing) to name a few.

What are your goals and dreams?  What do you want to work for?  What are you waiting for!?!
