Some Top 4’s – Another “Reflecting on 2014” Post

Reflect‘Tis the season for reflection and hopefully a bit of relaxation.  I’ve taken a break from math and ed-tech the past few weeks to spend QT with family (some days I took a break from just about everything… darn you, flu).  Exhaling is good – this post was an appropriate read for me.  Balance is important.  When you’re passionate, sometimes balance is tough.

Before I place my teacher-hat back on my head next week, and hit the ground running for another semester, I wanted to pause and share a few favorites from 2014.  Every year I work with students, blog, and spend time reading others’ blogs and tweets, I get more excited to try new things and improve.  So many folks and tools have helped equip me to be better so my students can be better.  I’m grateful to continue learning and growing, and I’m thankful to be a small piece in the vast Math-Twitter-Blog-o-Sphere.
