Looking at the date of my last post makes me cringe. I cannot believe it has been 5 years since my last post, which wasn’t really a post but actually a re-post from someone.
I began this blog in order to be a model for my students. Each of my students has been set-up with their own blog since 2009 and I thought it would be a good idea to model all the things I wanted them to be doing (you know those things we now call the ISTE standards). However, the workload of teaching AP English classes, honors classes, no conference period, etc., etc., proved to be too much for my blogging life.
Why now? I am wrapping up this school year as a new Educational Technology Facilitator. My DREAM job! Really. It’s the job I envisioned 20 years ago when I began teaching. Finally, my school district caught up with my dream and here I am. Now that I don’t have student blogs to grade I can put a bit more energy into my own blog. When I began this blog in 2009 I had a vision for what it would be. Now it’s time to make that a reality too.
