It’s been 1 year…

It’s been one year approximately since I wrote on my first blog.  It was started for a class I was teaching and how I went essentially to project based teaching in a flip of a switch. It molded into more about my journey in technology education and making.

However, I never maintained it.  The why was mostly time and nerves of posting.  Time in the day is hard to come by with teaching and family.  I always forget to document what is going on.  I stress this in my classroom; how the documentation is the key.  The documentation is what we can go by.  I also stress the need to put ourselves out there.  I stress to my students that we need to show others what we do.  I can talk to people and share my expertise that way, but with blogging I always hesitant.  I worry about my grammar; I am not the best writer and I forget words all the time.

So I begin again continuing with journey and the documentation.  I threw my child upstairs into the bath and am listening to her sing some song from My Little Pony about cutiemarks and how true true friends help friends in need.

I believe I am that friend.  I help others in school innovate their classrooms and mine own.  I am willing to try any project even if I have no idea if it is going to work or not (Operation games in Anatomy and Physiology come to mind).  And I want to put myself out there.  I want to lead by doing, by example.  It doesn’t have to be perfect (I say this all the time to my students).  I will try to proof read my own work.

I will make mistakes, I will not blog as much as I want, but I am going to try.  I say this as I head to Atlanta tomorrow for PD.

But I decided to give it a go again.  One reason is I want present more at workshops outside my own bubble world.  To do this I have to be more public about the cool world I live in.  I get to play with cool toys (3D printer, Laser engraver, computers, soldering irons).

I still haven’t found a good pic of me for the about me section (R2D2 might be used again) But right now I hear “Mom can I get out now?” and off I go….
