I am happily sitting down from a long day of teaching in my new library. My husband has been a tremendous help with all of it, including the finishing touches. I am fortunate to have such a wonderful place to work (although I wish the sun would stream through the orange fall leaves right now).
As I was sitting down, I had no idea what I might write about today. I sat in my chair, looked out at the gorgeous fall view outside my room and the blog that I was reading yesterday popped back up.
We are all making history. We need to remember that. It may not be in grand ways that dance across the cover of a paper or make the evening news, but we all make history. We cause change.
Many years ago, I believed I wanted to be a principal or other administrator. BAH! No desire to do that now. That is not me. I know where my strengths are and where my passions lie.
I love history.
I love to travel.
I love to teach kids.
With this being said, my website, Moffat's Travels, was born. Today I had a delightful conversation with a parent that will be traveling to DC with her family. They have been many times before and she and I were sharing itineraries in the area. She was trying to decide between Gettysburg or other Pennsylvania sites. I suggested Colonial Williamsburg.
I have had the fortunate opportunity to travel with summer teacher scholarships. I have been to been to Chicago, Monterey, Philadelphia, Springfield, Gettysburg, and Colonial Williamsburg on teacher scholarships. I have traveled to many major cities with my own family. I love all of it.
I loved being able to share some of the insights into these places and what might interest their daughter. As an educator and a travel fanatic, this brings me great pleasure. I may not move mountains, but I open doors to young minds. I open those doors daily through my teaching, private conversations and the opportunities I take advantage of.
That is my history.
