    So I've always thought of blogs as an exercise in narcissism. Now that I actually have a topic that I can blog about though I've started doing one myself at the suggestion of NJL. I still think it's an exercise in narcissism but oh well.

    The focus of my blog is being a first year teacher and that's what my posts are all about. I had my first class today and it was pretty crazy but went ok.

    Here's the site if anyone's interested:

    It's not all that great. I'm still trying to get down a style and whatnot...hopefully it will get better.

    If would have had a blog my first year of teaching, it would have been nothing but a bunch of @#$%!!! and ########! and !@#%$#$.

    I'll be reading this...I miss teaching; I've mostly been studying it in grad school for the past several years, but miss "doing". If you ever want to turn the blog into an academic paper and want to bounce around ideas, write me.

    My first year of teaching was great, but exhausting...one night I was talking in my sleep and asked my wife where her math homework was. ahh anxiety fun.

    For those of you who read it and enjoyed Friday's stick with today's too. I got it up late and it's kind of slow at the beginning but I've got some more Teacher Appreciation card sentiments that are pretty good. :)

    i read that with mitch hedberg's voice in my mind.




    yeah, we had the santa's secret shop in my elementary school, too, and it was dollar-store stuff, as well.
