Growth is about struggle. Learning and improving is about struggling with a concept or new idea. Things should be difficult at times. As adults we need to struggle. That new idea should cause us to get uncomfortable. Today we had real conversations within our professional learning committee. We had dialogue that was authentic. People challenged each other in professional ways. We struggled grasping what it is we want from our district's professional learning plan. We are having crucial conversations that are making positive impacts on our school. It's not easy, and we will continue to struggle. Innovation is messy and often lacks a clear path. I think at times you have to struggle, take risks, reevaluate, have more dialogue, and create the path.
