Why Blog Now?

I have always been very reluctant about being a blogger. Why? I've never considered myself a writer. I am a very literal writer and can produce a research paper worthy of an A.

I was recently asked to write a blog post for the Alabama NBCT Network. I fretted for days over what to write, but then it just came to me. I found it a very freeing and rewarding experience. You can find that post here. So, as they say, the rest is history!

I know that God called me to be a teacher. He has blessed me with a gift of teaching and encouraging children and adults. I spend my days in teaching a super group of 4th graders. On the side, I work with teachers by teaching various technology related workshops. I also work with VocabularySpellingCity in promoting their fantastic site. My life revolves around my God, my family, and my career. I want to use this blog to glorify Him as well as share thoughts, experiences, tragedies, and triumphs that take place in my classroom and professional career. I hope you share in this journey with me.
