This is officially my first blog post using the new Blogger through Google. I’m excited. I have kept a blog before, but I thought I would give this new blogger a try before I advocate for my students to have the same access through their school issued Gmail accounts.
Why do I think blogging is important?
I enjoy blogging, and not just because I’m an English teacher. I’m a “thinker.” I reflect…a lot. Every time I have a few free minutes, I like to reflect on moments – teaching moments, parenting moments, coaching moments, etc. But what I like about writing is it forces me to organize those moments of reflection and go deeper. Rather than just recall a particular moment from earlier that day, writing forces me to recall and almost replay it in slow motion, analyze it, and reflect.
So this new blog is to serve that purpose. It’s a space for parents, teachers, students, and anyone else out there to understand what makes me tick…and maybe leave a comment or two in the process.
Enjoy, because I will.
