Good To Be Home!

For the last two years, I have had to give up blogging almost entirely as I pursued my master’s degree.  This week I turned in my final assignment for my last class. HOORAY! Now in an effort to keep busy while I wait for feedback and grades, I have decided to jump back into blogging. has always been a place for me to reflect on my teaching practice. Writing about what I do in my classroom and how I do it has provided a rich reflective experience for me that I have missed while engaged in grad school.  I have learned so much over the last two years, but I regularly felt as if I was drinking from a fire hydrant and often longed for the time to really dig deep and reflect on what I was learning and how those things could be applied in my classroom. So now that the 2017-2018 school year is about to start, and with the feeling of freedom that comes with the absence of homework,  it feels like the right time to get back into blogging.     Please follow and like us:0 Like this:Like... read more
