Anxious yet eager--

Apprehensive yet confident—

Never really knowing the ending, yet perceiving an exciting journey--

Always upbeat and hopeful—

From kindergarten through 35 years in education, more than 55 years (oh my goodness), always the delight and thrill of a new beginning—the first day of school!

Tomorrow— again a new beginning with the Ohio Consortium PLP cohort and Sheryl and Will

And still, those same feelings -- and an additional sense of urgency-- to get to the work that I passionately believe can result in a more accomplished global practice, a practice that seizes the potential of collective action to make this world a better place.

This beginning is really very special.

I have a sneaking feeling the anxiety you feel is the anxiety all the best teachers feel as they begin a new school year. While that feeling is, by and large, the same from year to year you are not; you just keep getting better at what you do.

Cheers to a great year ahead!
