I woke up around 2 a.m., as I have been doing, with dreams of accreditation documents swirling in my head. I also wondered how many people might already be on the road, in the middle of their Thanksgiving travels.
Then I rolled over and went back to sleep.
I've also been seeing some people's Facebook posts about the Thanksgiving cooking that has begun, particularly the baking. Yes, I would like to be making pies, instead of changes to the accreditation documents.
But it's OK; I won't always be working on accreditation documents, and it's a fact of life for all of us these days in education. It's a particular season, accreditation season, and it will return to us on a regular basis.
And it's a good thing, in many ways. Accreditation gives us a chance to assess what we're doing well, and what we should consider changing.
But I do wish it involved some making of pie.
Accreditation pie--there's a thought for a poem!
