This is the latest in a series of blogs by a partnering cohort teacher.

When I started this Fluency journey last year I thought, what am I signing up for? Why am I signing up for this? I still have unanswered questions about the Fluency project but I am so glad that I am a part of this process. This has been a reflective year for myself not only professionally but personally as well. I attribute that to Fluency. I have been encouraged by the Fluency process and the people involved. This process has given me a platform for trying new things without fear of failure because we learn from each trial whether it is successful or not.
I have spent a great deal of time this year reflecting on my teaching and asking questions. Why do I teach this content in this way? Is this what is best for the students? How can I make this better? Overall, this has been a year of growth and rejuvenation. I have implemented new ideas and classroom structures to build a better learning environment with more engaging lessons. I have learned so much about who I am as a teacher and who I can be for my students.
I have much more to learn and I am excited to see where the Fluency project will take me as I continue to grow and learn.
