one word

Our new Superintendent has asked staff in our district to consider “one word” for 2018. 

In place of resolutions, what one word could serve as a reminder, or a focus for personal growth? 

I like this idea. as it dovetails nicely with my own philosophy: No resolutions, just low-key executions

What one word best captures my own ideals? 

What one word best describes my aspirations? 

Numerous words come to mind for 2018, but I keep coming back to one...


Why? For me, upside represents positive thinking. There’s a lot of negative energy out there. And, it’s easy to get sucked into that line of thinking. 

Upside reminds me that there is always a different approach. 

There’s always a solution. There’s always a benefit. There’s always a choice...if you look for an upside


Gearing up for 2018. I love the speed and the creativity inherent in the digital classroom, but I am always aware that there is power in all things analog.  

Digital for storage and quickness. Analog for fatness and warmth.

People are so into digital recording now they forgot how easy analog recording can be.
