The natural response is at the beginning of course. But where is that?
What happens to teachers is that today, more than ever, there are resources for every subject, every grade level and almost every requirement for educating our students. It is wonderful and overwhelming all at the same time. For example, when I started looking at my first unit for the year, I planned to spend about an hour re-visiting it, adding new ideas, finding those resources that I collected over the summer - you know, just getting my head back into the game. Four hours later, I have 12 tabs open on my computer and I am not really any further along than I was this morning. So to identify where the "beginning" is - well, that is the challenge isn't it?
My point in this blog is to share my teaching journey - my thoughts, resources and challenges along the way.
To those out there who are in this journey with me - share your stories so that we can find strength together.
To the 2018-2019 school year - buckle up!
