Hey there! I'm Vivian. Sometimes I write about life and sometimes I write about teaching.

I’ve been teaching for almost two decades and (confession time) I’ve never done any authentic writing for myself. No journal, no diary, no nothin’. Wait…does Twitter count? Any writing I’ve done has been solely for the purpose of modeling for my students. Inspired by the Teachers Write project, I decided it was time to “walk the walk” and start my own blog.

This fall will be my first time teaching middle school. I will be teaching Language Arts and Social Studies to sixth graders. It is my hope that this blog can be a place for me to share my experiences and we can learn from each other as educators.

My general outlook on life and teaching: have fun!

  1. So glad you are writing! Moving to middle school from elementary is a move I made and I’ve enjoyed every moment. I spent 13 years in elementary school and the past five in middle. I think you’ll love it! Blogging with my students (and for my students) has been a terrific experience too! Love to have you visit my blog: mshaseltine.edublogs.edu Good luck!
