In looking at my past posts, it looks that August 2008 is the last time I sat down and actually typed something, that was I guess worth writing. Where have I been? That’s a discussion for another time. For the longest time, I just had no desire to be a part of anything.
Part of it is a disconnect. Alot of it is from apathy. Not just mine, because for the longest time until recently I ceased feeling like I made a hill of beans difference in the lives of the students I came into contact with. Alot has changed since then. I’ve been showing my face in and around Twitter alot more in the last few weeks (although I still can’t get into using it on my iPhone yet). Here’s hoping I can keep up with my random musings. I’ve missed it, and I’ve missed some of the conversations I’ve had with many of my old readers. So I promise to start out slow and we’ll see how it goes.
I will finish with this thought. I can say that this has been probably the most positive last 2 weeks or so I’ve had professionally in a long time. 3 teachers begin their blogging experience with their classrooms this week. I’ve also spent some time in a 6th Grade classroom teaching them how to use Photostory/Digital Storytelling. Maybe that itch that I have to get back into the classroom might just be a full blown epidemic? Time will tell.
I remember one thing that my good friend Jen Wagner and I used to say to each other way back when as we embarked on this journey together into new roles (hard to believe it was almost 3 1/2 years ago now Jen), and I guess I’d forgotten our own advice: “Baby Steps”
