As I get ready to start the year, I am feeling behind and really excited. I hope I am not alone in this feeling. I have to admit part of my anxiety is due to taking on a new responsibility that will require more time. I also spent most of the summer doing professional development. I did not get a chance to work on curriculum like the previous summer. Despite my mixed feelings and thoughts, I had an amazing revelation while at school.
This revelation came almost at the end of the day when I realized I didn't get many of my classroom tasks completed. How is it I spent 8 hours at school and barely got my classroom tasks ready? It is the day before school and guess what I spent most of the day doing? Helping other people. Although I hate I didn't work some personal tasks accomplished, I realized that I am starting to love helping other teachers just as much as I love teaching students.
It is with this realization that I have made a greater commitment to keep up my blog. I know that the more I am consistent with this blog the more I am helping other teachers. I have placed in my iPhone an alert to make a post every Sunday and Wednesday. It is amazing how much I get done now that I place it in my iPhone.
To all you blog watchers out there, here is another info spot. I will continue to focus on project based learning with an integration of technology emphasis. However, I am going to discuss general technology information or teaching strategies. I will not only talk about how I am doing it in my math class but I will also share items that would be helpful for other subject areas. Please comment as much as possible to let me know I am providing helpful information.
