My original blog was accidentally deleted. I have done my best to try to find the "undo" button, but it was to no avail. I have spent over a week debating whether or not I should continue to try and restore my other blog, start a new one, or simply do nothing at all.
And then I thought about teaching. If I was working with a struggling student in my class and had tried 80 something interventions and none of them worked, would I simply stop trying? Would I continue to do try to do interventions that were not effective, even after trying each one several times? Of course I wouldn't do either of those things. I would talk to colleagues and the student's parents. I would do research and bounce possible ideas off of other team members. And I would try again to help that student succeed.
So here I am, trying again.
