My title is a mistake...my fingers jumped on the keyboard, and this is what I found in the title bar of my blog where my "real" title was supposed to be. Its brevity attracted me, and this is what I came up with based on my little mishap.

One phrase aptly spoken
One smile given at just the right moment
One compliment at the crucial hour
One person that laughs with you to relieve the tension

One tweet that inspires
One blog that ignites an idea
One lesson that unfolds in unexpected ways
One student that understands
One moment that stands in time, remembered
One mistake that becomes a masterpiece

One can make a difference
One is powerful
One may be small but it's enough sometimes, because
One can change everything
One is important
One teacher
One life

Slice of Life Tuesdays: April 1st-- "Surrounded by Friends"

This was my first year of slicing through March and my first year to start a weekly post. I am so excited to be part of this community. Even though we just finished the month-long challenge yesterday, today feels different. It's the start of something new for me.

It has been a breath of fresh air to me to be a part of a group of dedicated professionals who care deeply about the things that also move me.

Writing. Thinking. Reading. Reflecting.

Lost arts in so much of society, but present here. Flourishing here, actually.

I'll get to the the slices of my life in the future, but right now, the slice that seems the most important to share is how I feel right now at my cluttered desk during my planning period on April 1st.

I feel surrounded by friends.

Some may call that crazy, but I think you probably understand, writing buddies. I love the connections I've made here and the community I've been invited into.

Here's to many more slices!
