Getting Back Into the Swing of Things

I used to be much more active on Twitter and writing blog posts. I was in the habit of checking Twitter several times a day and staying somewhat engaged. When I thought of things I wanted to write about, I blogged. I read people’s blogs via Google Reader ans Twitter. But in the last two to three years, I have gotten away from both of these things. I miss them. I like being engaged with both Twitter and blogs. So, what happened? via GIPHY Quite simply, life happened. My children are growing up and getting involved in more things. Some of the things I’m involved in outside of school have taken up more of my time. School has taken more time. And by the time I sit down in the evening, I’m thinking about ways to decompress from the day and Twitter and blogs have become an afterthought. And that makes me sad. I miss the interactions I had been […]

Why I LOVE Twitter

This is the first of three posts that are floating around in my head.  We are in Cincinnati this weekend visiting my brother-in-law and his family, so I’m not totally sure if I’ll get them all out or not. I took a personal day Friday so we could be down here – DH had a vendor symposium north of Dayton on Friday and we always take the time to come down as a family so we can visit my brother-in-law and his family.  Their kids are close in age to our kids and they all enjoy playing together.  Some of my fondest memories as a child are times that I spent with my cousins and I certainly want my children to have those memories too.  But, I digress… I have always enjoyed connecting with other math teachers on Twitter.  When I have been explaining Twitter to other teachers, I have used the analogy of it being a huge faculty lounge […]

Mid-Career Crisis

Well, I have finally up and done it.  I have started blogging.  I suppose this was bound to happen.  I suppose I ought to give a bit of an introduction and why I’m here, but it will take some time.  So, I’ll start with the homework issue that we started with last night. I have taught for 18 years – all but one at the high school level.  I spent last year (08-09) teaching 7th and 8th grade math and I had also taught 8th grade math earlier in my career at a 7-12 high school.  I have never been really happy with how I’ve done homework.  In reality, there are a lot of things I’m not happy with at the moment (hence the title), but I’ll get into those over the next few weeks. I had started on Twitter in the fall and winter, but got away from it in the spring – things had gotten too busy and […]
