Last year, I had a difficult time finding my OLW... but once I found it, it permeated my year.
This year, my OLW came to me so easily that I don't even know how I found it. However, I think it's just what I need: it keeps last year's DELIGHT alive while challenging me to move forward with new intensity.

Like last year's word, "SPARK" is both a noun and a verb: something I want to be and something I want to do:
|from my new favorite dictionary, Vocabulary.com|
I want to SPARK a love of learning in my students: to activate curiosity and trigger lifelong reading and writing habits.
In all of this, I want to shine like a SPARK: emitting rays of delight and energy while spreading positive change.
Jennifer, I can feel the spark as read your post! I love the line: "I want to SPARK change in my school." I need to remember that as well. Spark brings joy and delight with it. Maybe they are BFFs??ReplyDelete
Since I loved your 'delight' last year, I know that this 'spark' will keep the fire going, Jennifer! Wonderful! “You have to find what sparks a light in you so that you in your own way can illuminate the world.” from Oprah!ReplyDelete
You have already gotten to know your word well. Your post spark-les with it. I need to take some time to get to know my word a little more too.ReplyDelete
Almost missed this post! Your word will light the way for your year.ReplyDelete
