Welcome to my little corner of the internet! I’ve dreamed about starting a blog for years but have always found one reason or another not to … What would I write? Would anyone other than my grandma and mom read it? How could I possibly balance time to run a blog with college classes? With questions like these floating around in my head I always talked myself out of it – until now.
I recently created the instagram account @t_isforteaching & have been completely inspired by the little peek I’ve seen into the online teacher community. Through that account I stumbled upon Kelsey’s blog as well as her post on why you should start a teaching blog this summer and knew I had no choice but to finally take a leap and go after my dream of starting a blog.
This fall I will be starting my third year of teaching middle school, 8th grade to be exact. (I know, I know, 8th grade is the worst … how do I do it? If I only had a dollar for every time someone was shocked I chose to teach middle school ….) Anyways, I’m certainly new to the world of teaching and hope to use this blog to connect with and learn from those much more experienced than I. However, I also believe that as a young and beginning teacher I bring a lot of fresh and valuable ideas to the table and I plan on designing a creative outlet to share those ideas with others.
I could not be more excited to start “T is for Teaching” and hope you’ll join me to see where this journey goes. If you’re a teacher, a blogger, a middle school teacher who blogs, or you know a great middle school teacher that blogs please be sure to comment, follow along, or send me an email so that we can connect.
