I have not blogged in a REALLY long time. I guess I just needed to disconnect for a while, on Twitter as well. Why I am not really sure, but it is what it is.
I think I just needed to find more applicable uses for my blog, more meaningful to me. I can share some ed. admin. ideas but I find I learn more from others and don’t really give a lot back. I will still share ideas as I get them, but I need to have a more direct purpose for blogging.
Since I have changed positions this year, I am teaching a bit more. Hence, it is only natural to use this as a meeting place for my students. Here I can share items and have them respond. This is in addition to their personal blogs as well.
I would also like to use my blog as a medium, to help parents understand better, what we do in education. As the years pass, I find it frustrating that school is a bit of a mystery to parents and I don’t think this is right. Blogs are a great way to invite conversation and share ideas. Maybe a few can be shared here with insights that can De-mystify schools for parents.
So let’s move forward!
