With 2020 in sight, I believe it is important to stop to
reflect on all that happened in our lives during 2019. Take time to think about

both in your personal life and in your professional life. Celebrate all you
have accomplished. It can be very empowering to stop, remember and be grateful
for all that has happened.
To give you a little push toward this, try this out. List
the top three events of your year, along with what made them so special.
I challenge you all to do this and have your students do
