Oh yeah. I have a blog.

Last week my sister re-entered the blogging world after a few months off.  And like any good little sister, I figured I should follow suit.  Why, you ask?  Well maybe you didn't ask, but I'm going to tell you anyway.

I like having a place to write down my thoughts.  I don't journal, so a blog is a place to share some musings and funny teaching stories.  I regularly have an internal dialogue about sharing and over-sharing on social media.  So instead of continuing to judge all those people, I'm joining in and hoping that I can be wise with my words.  More on that later.

Also, I am a bit of a techie nerd.  Over the last couple of years I've had the opportunity to get geeky at school though an iPad and a teacher technology cohort.  My students made all kinds of videos, avatars, slideshows, and even a video game in an effort to help them get engaged in learning and become more computer literate.  I love exploring new websites and dreaming of ways to make them useful.  Technology as a means has great potential.  As an end, it is wasteful.  I don't really use this blog for educational purposes, but it keeps me connected to a broader world than my current circles.

Finally it's summer.  And I have time.  I will probably post a handful of posts and then go a little crazy when a new school year starts.  So enjoy it while you can!
