On December 10th, 2007 I put up my first post on YLHelp. Over the first summer I decided to do a series on “This Year…”. In these posts I reflect over the summer on things I learned over the course of the previous school year.
Summer is a good time to take a step back and reflect at a distance on all things YL.
I have a handful of reflections I’m about to roll out about the 2014-2015 school year, but I thought I’d take a bigger step back to show you the 47 previous reflections I’ve had over the past 8 years. Some are a bit dated, and some have been updated quite a bit (for leadership see this post), but chances are there is something hidden below that is worth your time.
