I am not sure how the #CelebrateMonday started, but it has changed my thinking. Until I became a twitter junkie, I used to dread Mondays. It felt like an interruption to my weekend. I was never irritated with any of the other days.
So what changed? I credit my PLN with encouraging everyone to celebrate Monday. I give full credit to @smgaillard because I can count him for an early morning tweet on Monday that reminds me to celebrate Monday.
I had a teacher who asked how more Mondays we had left. My response to her was “Not enough.”
Why? This year has been amazing and I don’t want it to end. I found a new role that created a greater passion for education than before. I work with amazing teachers who work hard to reach all children. They reflect and strive for excellence. I know that next year will bring changes.
I love and enjoy my family, but I also look forward to the start of the week. It is full of possibility. I spend part of my weekend prepping for it. I think that is why Sunday nights are so hard for me to fall sleep. I feel like I can’t contain the excitement for the next week.
I think this covers my belief about Monday:
Now if the alarm clock did go off so early.
