There is no time like the present.

For a long time, I have intended to begin a professional blog. I have blogged before about travel, and now I administer a group of 8 and 9 year old bloggers at Pt England School, Auckland, where I teach.

Yet, there is something both empowering and intimidating about sharing ones own professional thoughts, successes and invariably failures. It leaves you open to a wide audience of critics - and this is why I have come to the conclusion that I need to commit my ideas and trials to a blog. There is nothing more powerful that receiving professional feedback from your colleagues, and this is often quite hard to elicit within the busy schedules of school life.

The title for this blog comes from a thought that is so often in the back of my head when I am thinking about all the things I would like to do both professionally and personally. My word for the week is "efficient" and it is something that I hope to work on so that I have more time and energy to put into the things that I am passionate about.

  1. This is a fantastic goal Laura. Thanks for sharing with your colleagues. You have done better than me this year at sharing on your blog - maybe I'll get those drafts online in the holidays ;)
