2015...right around the corner

A look back at my 2014 goals...  My word for the year was FOCUS.

2014 brought many life lessons...my focus wasn't always crystal clear...I didn't achieve all of my goals but the fact that this doesn't completely stress me out shows a lot of growth for me!  Life sometimes gets in the way...in both good and bad ways...but being able to continue moving forward in a positive manner is the ultimate goal.

2014 Goals:

Read: 175 books
Nope.  I read 108 but you know what?  I'm okay with that.  It's still A LOT of books!  

Run: 1000 miles
Nope.  I ran 517 miles.  Yes, that is WAY short of the crazy goal of 1000 miles, but it's still 517 miles (made my #500in2014 group goal)!  I love the movie Nike+ made showing my year in running.  

  • involvement at the state & national level in AISLE & ISTE-SIGLIB
Yes! In 2014 I was named as the AISLE representative for ISTE.  I was also named President-Elect for the ISTE Librarians Network (formerly known as SIGLIB).  Both are honors and responsibilities I am quite excited to fulfill!
  • collaboration at school with teachers
My job title and responsibilities changed for the 2014-2015 school year.  I now have the opportunity to meet with teachers more regularly and help with technology implementation.  I also have enjoyed planning PD for our staff--20 hours offered so far!
  • awesome group projects with amazing TL friends around the country like Matthew Winner, Andy Plemmons, Shannon Miller, Tiffany Whitehead...
Genius Con!  What a great group project!

My 2015 Goals:

  • Read 115 books.
  • Run 600 miles. (50 monthly!)
  • Challenge myself professionally in new ways.
I'm not sure where I'm going with the professional challenge goal...but I do know that with my job changes this school year, I'm struggling with feeling successful and I need that to change.  More thoughts on this soon as I reflect and evaluate.

Bring on 2015...it's time to GROW.  


  1. I know what you mean! I haven't found my place at my new job and haven't found my focus either!
