April 1, 2011 My Reflection

First, I learned that I could get over the fear of writing for my peers. I have always been fearful of that. I felt so insecure and that what I wrote didn’t matter. Well it does and others helped me to comfirm that! I was so elated by what others were willing to write on their blogs and reading them inspired me and helped me to keep going.

I found that I had the motivation and the stamina to continue at least for 31 days and maybe more. It was difficult at times, and at the end, I was have some difficulties but knew that it didn’t matter because as one person put it, writing is our life- well maybe I paraphrase, but it is a part of us and it gives others a glimpse into who we are at a given time.

Thanks for the opportunity. I loved the comments and they really kept me going. Now I know what I MUST do for my students. This really reinforces Writing Workshop! Happy Slicing! :)
