As always, I know that I will struggle with finding a balance between my work and personal lives. My driven nature always pushes me to do more than I probably should, especially with two young children and an incredibly supportive wife at home. I'm kind of like a light switch; I only have an "on" and an "off". For me, I have always struggled with sprinting ahead, when I should be taking on a marathon pace. This will be even more vital in this upcoming year, when I will desire to do as much as possible with this unique and honorable opportunity.

But this brings up another challenge. While it seems impossible that I could add more to my plate, I also don't want to drop some of the projects that I've been working so diligently on over the past few years. I want to engage in educational policy reform on all levels, but I don't want to neglect our Farm to School program. I want to attend national conferences as a representative of my state, yet I care about the Curriculum Committee in my school. I'm looking forward to a trip to the White House in April, but I wonder who will coach my track kids while I'm gone. I don't know if I can do it all. But I'm going to try.
