One of my professional goals for 2012 is to start blogging about my experiences in the fortress of education. To set the record straight, I am not blogging because everyone else is blogging. I find that my days are consumed by reading and responding to emails, and teaching and assessing my online students. There is very little time left for reflection, and that is not a good thing.
I tried to start this discipline in May 2012 when I attended The Vancouver Symposium on Christian Education for the 21st Century, but I didn’t get very far … like the bicycle above. I am making a new start, here at the beginning of a new quarter in our school year. I hope that by setting aside a few minutes a week and blogging about some of the educational experiences I am having, it will help me to become a more reflective, a.k.a. better, teacher.
To lifelong learning!
