About the Blogger
Many years ago I was lucky to have an amazing technology teacher who was always excited to explore different ways we could bring technology into the classroom this inspired me to use technology in my classroom. I came across two classroom blogs and loved seeing all of things happening in their individual classrooms. Nicole (my technology teacher helped me create a classroom blog. Rather then write a weekly newsletter I began weekly shares on my class blog. I have gotten wonderful responses from parents and the kids in my class.
Why I have a teacher blog?
The sole purpose of this teacher blog is to share things that work in my classroom and to connect with other teachers in any way possible. I am not trying to promote my ideas I am just trying to share. I have met many amazing teacher bloggers online who I have never met in person but feel fervently connected to.
I think sharing in the field of education is so important. I can remember my first public school teacher job. There were many teachers who were reluctant to share their great ideas.
I believe it is much more empowering in schools when teacher share their ideas and experiences.
I think of myself as a lifelong learner. Everyday of teaching brings me on a new learning adventure. I always want to find ways to bring best practice to my primary classroom. As a teacher, I have a deep interest and passion for literacy and technology. I feel great when I share something that I know someone else may use, especially if it helps a child to learn.
