To HELP YOU FULLY UNDERSTAND YOUR current concentration, what is the common thread that is chasing through all of your work? What do you SEE? What is the MEANING? Why is this work IMPORTANT? How are you growing in your work?

What do you need to do in order to get your work online and all up to speed? EXPECTATIONS should not be MINE but YOURS. 

CRASH! The trip is over… not really, now the adventure begins!

“In not stating the goal to the students, they are like a family going on a trip with Dad in the driver’s seat and him not sharing what the destination is. Dad knows where he’s going, but the rest of the family has no clue.” – Lori Wildeman

And the end of the trip… make sure you have plans… goals… know where you were headed in the first place.
