I recently started to reflect on my career. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE teaching Kindergarten, but I often wonder if I was not meant to do something
Should I take my show on the road?
In my quest to share and grow I submitted a proposal to present at a conference. I am going to give that a go and see where it takes me. I am really proud of the fact that I got my class of Kindergarten students up and blogging this past school year. I actually went to a conference at the beginning of March and attended a session about blogging in the classroom. I was so inspired that I went back to my room almost immediately and started blogging with the students. I was so excited about the learning that was taking place I started to spread the word around school. Since then a colleague and I created 2, count them, 2 iTunes U courses about blogging! I have had a great response from members of my PLN on Twitter and Facebook, and even some "followers" at my school.
In addition to my proposal to present, I created a personal website, just a place to showcase who I am as an educator and some of the things that I have accomplished. It is an online portfolio of sorts. I know what you are thinking, yes, I know it is summer time. In my defense, we have had lots of rainy days this summer! I actually enjoyed using Webs to create the page and Vizify to create my bio. They are two resources that are easy to use and produce great looking products.
So... without further ado, let the bragging begin!
