So here I am, starting a teaching blog at the cusp of beginning my ninth year of teaching and I have to wonder out loud,
What took me so long?
Oh, I can come up with all kinds of lame excuses as to why this never happened, ones I’m sure you’re familiar with in your own life as a human being on this planet. The chief one for me was/is: “I’ve been sooooooo busy doing_______.” Insert whatever into that blank and I’m sure I’ve said that at least once or thrice. However, I can’t sit here and beat myself up over the past, nor would it make for good reading if I just castigated myself, one post at a time.
No, I’m here to move past that, and this first post is proof that my intentions are good, my motivation is high, and I feel, with eight years under my belt, like I actually have something to say. Like I can contribute something to the ever-increasing white noise of the internet. Like Keating said, that the powerful play goes on, and I might contribute a verse.
Well my friends, my fist post has come to a close. I am excited about this new endeavor and look forward to where this will take me in the weeks and months and years to come.
May the force be with you,
