I have been contemplating the idea of starting a teaching blog. So, this is it. Thanks for stopping by.
Mission - it's my hope that I can start a conversation and I hope that others will contribute, help, and hopefully learn.
Theme - the theme I'm starting with is based on the Pink Floyd song, "Another Brick in the Wall." I always liked the concept of rebellion against the stale, tired, and sarcasm-filled teacher that does evil and seems to enjoy it. So hopefully here at this blog we can create a positive atmosphere where teachers can prevent themselves by being just another brick in the wall. It is simply my nightmare scenerio to one day be the teacher in this video near the beginning, "What have we here laddie? The laddie reckons himself a poet!" Sad.
So, teachers... don't be just another brick in this wall. Let's enjoy this tremendous career in teaching, help each other learn and get better, and hopefully inspire our kids to be the very best.
They do need education. A great one. Not just another 'brick in the wall.'
More to come over the weekend. If you have any ideas for what this could become, please leave a comment and let me know.
