Depending on your mindset, innovation can be a thrilling or frighting word. Personally, I am always striving to innovate, whether it is within education, personal goals, or my involvement in education organizations. Over the past few years, I have enjoyed serving as an advocate for education, literacy, teacher leadership, and professional learning, and frankly, all these areas have room for innovation. With that in mind, I decided my #oneword2018 would be Innovate. I want to continue my advocacy work while expanding my involvement in educational organizations and doing more to give back. Whether it is through my writing, speaking, volunteering, or serving in other capacities, I look forward to sparking innovation in the education field.
