Welcome to the 2019 #8weeksofsummer blog challenge! All educators are welcome to participate and reflect on their practice this #8weeksofsummer – a break for reflection and connection.

WIth enough perspective for last school year and some space to think through your past preformance, you are likely to begin mentally planning for next school year.
Consider coming up with a Big Hairy Audacious Goal for next year starting this week. What goal is so powerful that you are compelled to move toward, yet respectful of its immensity?

Start by reviewing the BHAG (“Bee-HAG”) concept from Built to Last by Jim Collins.

The Prompt:

Big Hairy Audacious Goal

What is your BHAG for next school year?

The Rules:

Have a Blog: You may blog on a traditional blog or use Facebook; any platform with an independent URL for each post.
