So I started this blog years ago. I’ve used it in the classroom with my students, to post conference presentations, and to put my musings. I wanted it to be a place to talk about my experiences as a teacher but it always seemed as if life got in the way. I joined #EdublogsClub to give me more purpose. If I can make it a habit, then I will find the time to write.
I’ve been an English teacher for 28 years. My kids tell me I should write a book about it. I just want to help other teachers learn from my mistakes and my triumphs.
Mistake #1: Quit procrastinating. I am so bad at it and it seems I get worse ever year. I will put it off until the very last minute. My excuse is I need to let it stew in my head, which I really believe I do, but I don’t need the stew to overcook. Once I put it down, I have practically no edits. That’s all excuses too. Don’t do what I do. Spend an extra 20 minutes getting whatever done. Then, on Sunday night you can watch The Walking Dead and not keep thinking that you will be a zombie yourself because you stayed up late finishing something that could have already been completed.
