I have been a teacher for 18 years and have a Bachelors in Biology and a Masters in Science Ed. Throughout my education, I have seen reforms come and go, but the underlying theme has been the same. In this world of ever changing information, it is more important to be able to make the big connections and be able to use and communicate information. Because of this, I am currently refocusing what I want my students to know and be able to do. Using technology and new tools has revitalized my teaching and I am enthusiastic about the change. I believe that blogs will serve an important function in the classroom.
I love to learn and teach. By writing about what I know or am working on, I share that knowledge but also gain the knowledge of others who write as well. This is a great forum for sharing ideas.
I feel as a teacher that students have plenty to say and need to have avenues to say it. Parents should be welcome to view our classroom through the blog.
Blogs are a great way to get your point across and read the thoughts of others. By writing your thoughts down, you are able to really mull them over and read the contributions of others.
