Thanks for joining me! In my 11th year of teaching, I’ve lightweight decided it’s time to start a blog of my journey as a teacher. I’ve dabbled in blogs and websites before as a requirement for my TeacherEd courses, but also as a tool for students. After discovering that all the stuff I built in the previous school would be gone after my departure, I realized it’s time to make one that I can “take” with me. Thank you to #MERIT18 for getting to move on that decision.
Some challenges I foresee are actually updating the blog. One of my colleagues uses her blog to find out what happened when she taught the lesson previously–what went well and what could improve. However, I’m mainly a paper and pencil person. I LOVE my paper planner and writing and doodling on it. Although I’m an avid social media user, I just can’t get away from writing down my thoughts and plans in a good old-fashioned notebook. This will be my focus this year.
(Yes, I realize that the quote and picture came with the blog theme, but I thought it was relevant with my current mood. Here we go!)
