Okay, I admit I'm starting this blog because I'm doing a workshop at AGATE this year on creating a G.T. website. I've had a website for several years now, but every time I log into the site I see this message that says "add a blog to complete the site." I figure if I'm trying to encourage teachers to more fully develop their G.T. websites I probably should have the blog. Besides, it will force me to reflect on the direction our program is going, making me feel guilty if I don't keep things up-to-date.
One of my favorite education-type quotes states: "How do I know what I think unless I write it?" I tell kids that all the time. Expect no earth shattering revelations --I don't. But I do plan on talking about what I have learned from my students and the insight I've gained from spending so many years in a classroom. Besides, now I don't have to see the "add a blog to complete the site" message anymore...
