The Bulldog Educator- A Re-launch

If you were a follower of the “Tag You’re It” blog, you may have noticed it has changed in name and format. I started this blog in 2013. It was a way to share ideas, thoughts, and reflections.

We are #BetterTogether

The better part of two weeks ago the United States entered into what much of the rest of the world was experiencing with COViD19 and traditional face to face education was turned on its ear.

My #OneWord2020: Wholehearted

My “One Word” for 2018

I thought long and hard about this word. I knew this word would be my word, but, honestly I didn’t want to admit it. It was a word that I kept denying was my word… until after my family determined our “One Word,” EMBRACE, and that word told me I couldn’t escape the word. (YouContinue reading “My “One Word” for 2018″

What Does Failing Forward Mean?

Recently at a social event a person quizzically stated to me, “I bet you are glad to see the school  year almost over.” I hesitated and then responded, “I feel like there is so much I still want to do that I thought I would have already accomplished.
