I love both of them. I love a fresh start. I love setting goals. Sometimes I think to myself I've failed at the many challenges and resolutions I make each year, but then I remember that I never give up so I never really fail!
In 2015 I only posted 36 blog posts, each year from 2012-2014 I had posted 50 blog posts, so I felt a little bad about that. So, this #MTBoS blogging initiative is a great match for my resolution to blog more!
This year I want my blog to focus on the math and teaching/learning. My 100% focus is student growth/success. In the past my blog was mostly "ooh I'm flipping my classroom", "oooh I'm trying math workshop!", "ooooh I'm a whole brain teacher" The really cool thing is that I've married all three of these teaching techniques and it is really working for me! When I say working for me, it means I "feel" like it is making me a more effective teacher, but now I want to really document if it actually is!
So here we go! The first step was to dust off your blog and kind of say your are participating. This is my blog post that does that!
