So, about this blog…

I really should have been blogging during the last few months. I am three months into teaching my first blended class, I am participating in an exiting and stimulating cohort hosted by The Online School for Girls and the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools, in early November at the VAIS, I presented my initial impressions in regards to my blended class. So many exciting things happening in my professional life, and I really should have been reflecting, thinking, and blogging about them all. But, I have not been.

Do not get me wrong. I have been thinking and reflecting about all of these things, but the blogging piece has been missing. To be sure, it has been an extremely busy fall, but I really should be able to set aside a few minutes each week to write about my teaching. The simple truth is that I got out of the habit of blogging, and it never seemed to be a good time to pick it up again.

So, here is another attempt at this. Maybe this attempt will end just as the first one. Maybe it will be better. I do not know. But, what I do know is that a part of me missed blogging. I have missed the clarity that comes from writing down my thoughts. I have missed the opportunity to really and truly reflect on why I teach in a certain way. I have no grand illusions. I do not anticipate writing an insightful, life-changing blog post every day. But, what I hope to do is to bring written reflection back, in whichever form, into my professional life. Let’s give it another try.
