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!
