It’s hard to believe this challenge started 31 days ago. At the beginning, it seemed like I was never going to be able to complete it, much less enjoy it. You see, I am teaching in a new district this year, in a grade level I’ve never taught, and a town in which we moved to 14 months ago. While I have thoroughly enjoyed these “new” things, taking on a writing challenge in the midst of preparing for state testing wasn’t something I had planned for or considered how much time it would take. Then came COVID-19 and suddently I needed this writing challenge. I needed something on my to-do list every day and someething that helped me analyze my day. I know that writing is a way to accomplish this, but I am quite sure I would not have used it as a strategy during this crazy new way we are now doing life if it were not for Slice of Life. So, at the beginning of March I was wishing I hadn’t taken on another new thing and now at the end of March I am so grateful I said yes to Slice of Life!
