Here I go... This isn't my first blog but it is my first one that deals with education. I'm quite excited to start this journey. I've read several blogs from people I follow on Twitter such as: @Grade1, @gcouros, @flourishingkids, @mrdflemming, @lorilovesbooks, @joe_bower and several others, too many to mention all at one time. All of you have been so inspirational with what you write, your encouragement and answering questions I might have. Thank you very much. I don't always respond to everything you post on your blogs, but I do read and reflect in my own way. I'll get better at responding I promise. When I read the latest post from @whatedsaid about 10 Ways to Grow as An Educator It really made me reflect and consider creating my own blog about my teaching and what others have to say on Twitter and their blogs. I've always kept a reflective journal when I started to change my math pedagogy but it had always been for my own eyes.
Several of you recommend blogging so I'm going to give it a try. This is going to be my first post of many to come. I've got lots to talk about especially when it comes to teaching. Those of you who know me well, know that teaching is my passion. I consider myself to be a good teacher who is always wanting to improve upon my craft. So...I'm coming up to my 1000 tweet and I felt this would be a great way to remember it. In the future I hope you find this interesting, inspirational, and insightful.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to reading and responding to your comments.
