Through the years I have read a lot of blogs and other professional articles.  I have been amazed at the information I have learned, shared, and commented on during this time.  In the back of my mind I have always thought of creating a blog to share my thoughts, questions, or other items that might be important.  I can’t tell you the number of “draft” posts I have made only to not have the courage to upload them.  One of the reasons for this is that I don’t consider myself a great writer.  When I read other posts I am amazed at how well they are written.  I would think to myself there is no way I can do that.

This past year I have stressed the importance of taking risks and working outside of your comfort zone.  I have also spoken with others about becoming transparent in the awesome work that we do as educators.  Well, my words came back and hit me squarely on the jaw.  I told myself it was not right for me to ask this of others when I was unwilling to do it myself.

So I have bitten the bullet and am completing the creation of my blog.  I don’t expect to become a great writer overnight.  I expect there to be grammatical errors no matter how much proof reading happens.  With that said, I do hope you enjoy what I have to say and are able to make sense out of my posts.

If you are wondering about the title of the blog is here is a little information:

Kaizen is the Japanese word for “improvement” or “change for the better”.  I like to think of it as “continuous improvement” or “continuous learning”.  When applied properly the practice of “kaizen” can have a profound impact on all functions of an organization.  By reading this blog I hope you find something that will allow you to improve your practice.
