My First Blog Post

So........ here I go!

I've been thinking about starting a blog about teaching for a few years now.  I've been teaching for many years, but I am always looking for new ideas and ways to make learning math easy and fun!  I have followed other math-teacher bloggers for years and have always thought about sharing ideas and experiences in my own blog.  I have finally decided to take the plunge and just do it already!

I am sitting at my desk at home thinking about finally "launching" my blog, and, at the same time, getting ready to go back to work after this short summer break.  My district runs on sort of a year-round schedule, so our school year begins earlier than most.  Tomorrow is the start of the week-long professional development week for teachers, and the following week (Monday, August 1st, to be exact) is the first day of the school year.

I am pretty excited about starting the new school year, but right now, all I can think of is how I hope to have enough time to get my classroom ready (isn't that what we all worry about right before the school year begins?).  I was able to go to my classroom last week for a few hours and move things around, but it's nowhere near ready, as you can see below.

I am looking forward to this week, as well as next week, when we welcome a brand new set of 9th-graders to our school.  Whether they take my Algebra 1 or Geometry class this year, I hope to help them reach their full potential.  Maybe I will even help them love math almost as much as I do!
