This isn’t a “mom” blog. It isn’t a “religious” blog either. It’s not a “how-to” article, a “10 ways to know that..” or a recipe box. I’m not selling anything or judging anyone. This blog won’t win a teacher of the year award. It won’t solve all your dinner time problems. This blog is mostly for me. It is the outward expression of my inward monologue.
Confession: I had a teacher blog once. It was fun. I shared what I learned in Graduate program. I wanted someone besides my teachers to read my thesis. I shared what learned in my first years teaching. I connected with other teachers. I networked. In in the end, I lost heart for my blog when I became a mom.
I became more than a teacher. At the same time, I was more than just a mom. My blog, however, was strictly education minded.
I would like to think I’m a fairly dynamic person. I’m a wife, mother, middle school teacher and follower of Jesus Christ. I have a degree in religious education, studio art, and a masters in curriculum and instruction. I’m a lover of books, cats, cooking, gardening and home DYI. I have experienced loss and yet, I memories that overflow with joy. How could this person write about only one topic and be satisfied?
What if I could write toward an audience of similarly dynamic, multifaceted humans? Would these humans commune with me in my struggle, join in on my adventure, and listen to my inner thoughts? Or would that just be weird? I don’t know, but let’s try.
