In the unit we are teaching,  the theme is dreams. We started by asking students to differentiate goals and dreams. And I realize now what the difference is. Goals are small and measurable. Dreams are big and depend on you. My goal is to write two lesson plans. My dream is to one day be Teacher of the Year. I have to make strides and overcome obstacles to achieve my DREAM. Goals aren’t as hard in my opinion. Dreams make us cast fear aside and rely solely  on our faith that IT CAN AND WILL HAPPEN. I think we all have dreams or we should all have dreams. They give us something else to live for. And they, hopefully, make us better.
