Hopes and Goals

When I initially set up this blog, the idea was to create a place where teaching ideas could accumulate and be shared. I didn't think that it would be so long between setting up the space and actually getting the blog underway. I have finally reached a place where I am ready to share some information and some ideas to help others in their education journey.

As a middle school teacher, I have found that there are not many sites dedicated to the plight of the teachers of this group of students. I hope to compile a number of teaching ideas to help make things a tad easier! Reinventing the lesson every time can be a little daunting and I will try to alleviate some of the stress here.

Talking about education

Learning how to communicate with other educators is essential to creating an environment where all students receive the best education possible. As educators we must work together to share knowledge, ideas and opportunities to improve not only our practice, but also how students learn. I have created this blog as a space to share teaching ideas and opportunities. As I continue on my journey to become a master teacher I want to share the information I acquire in an effort to bring myself out of the solo classroom and into the teaching community.

One of the most helpful pieces of advice I have received, as a teacher, was "The best teachers are the ones who learn how to 'borrow' ideas and make them their own." This is a site to forward that advice and share ideas that can be borrowed. There are a multitude of ideas that can be adapted for use in a variety of situations.
