Well, after stalking bloggers on the internet for several years, I’ve decided to start my own. I’m still not really sure why or what it will accomplish, but it seems like a good way to force myself to reflect on what I’ve done. I figure, that’s got to be a good thing. Right?
So, a bit about me. I teach high school math…been at it for 15 years and have taught everything from pre-algebra to pre-calculus. When school starts Wednesday (yuck) I will be teaching probability & stats, intro to education, college algebra, AP stats, and algebra 2 (“regular” and pre-AP). Before y’all start commenting…I teach on a trimester schedule…the most preps I have at any given time is 3. I tend to be a workaholic–not really sure how to turn it off at night sometimes. When I’m not teaching, I play the role of mom to a pretty awesome kiddo. Okay, she’s actually 20 and starting her junior year of college, but it still counts. I have a great husband who tolerates my crazy ideas and even tries to help me implement them from time to time. I’m working on another degree from a local university, which I hope to complete in a year or eighteen months. I like knitting, crocheting, and cross stitching (althought I don’t have a lot of time for those activities right now–someday I’ll go back to them).
I teach with some really cool people who help me work through most of the stuff I do, and honestly I don’t think I do much that is great, but I keep reading about what others are doing and thinking “hey, I do that” so maybe I do have some stuff to share with the world. I figure, I’ll put it out there and if anyone reads this they can decide.
