I began this blog in 2012 when I was asked two weeks before the school year to be a teaching coach. I would be a part time computer lab teacher and coach at the same time. Receiving a new teaching assignment at such a late date allowed me a bit of leverage with my boss- I told him I wouldn't be writing lesson plans to submit weekly to him alone but instead would blog my lesson plans as a way to provide transparency as well as model for other teachers what blogging looked like.
Over the next four years I would write various types of posts:
- On Coaching- examples of great technology integration, how-to guides and resources for educators, and posts promoting my colleagues and celebrating their willingness to incorporate technology
- On Reflection- topics that are personal to me as an educator but show how I continue to grow and question my contribution to the profession
- On Tips for a broader audience- information that not only pertains to the university students I teach but also for educational leaders
It's a bit difficult to think of where I'll be after another 4 years, and if I'll write another 100 blog posts. I do know, however that I'll still be in the field of education. Like technology, it's my passion.
