The Return: Where Have I Been?


Listen to the full episode to hear my comeback episode on where I’ve been:

I’m back, friends! I’d like to attribute my absence to taking a break for the summer to relax, travel, and enjoy the sun, but that wouldn’t be the truth. I always strive to be open and honest with you all, so that’s exactly what I’m going to do. In my comeback episode, I’m going to explain my absence, what I’ve learned about myself, and how my story can help you.

It’s never one thing that broke the camel’s back, it’s a combination of a lot of little things. This has never been more true for me. The explanation for my absence is complex and personal that includes a lot of events that have led to transitions in my life, which have then resulted in a process of healing and understanding. After taking a deeper look into myself, I now have the tools to be a better version of myself. After listening to this comeback episode, I encourage you to pause and listen to yourself if you too need a break.

Stay tuned for next week’s episode where I jump back into providing you with engaging literacy content and educator-specific episodes!

In this comeback episode on explaining my absence, I share:
  • My personal and complex reason for taking a break from the podcast
  • How during difficult times I focused on my why
  • What I’ve learned about myself over the past few years
  • A message for those who might be feeling the same way as I did
