Why I think I should blog


Hello, my name is Mrs. Fuller, and I’m a math teacher.  Isn’t that how the meetings start?

Anyway, I’ve spent many months reading fantastic, inspiring bloggers like Dan Meyer, Kate Nowak, Dave Sladkey, Tom DeRosa, and others, and have come to a couple of conclusions: (1) making mistakes & blogging about them makes for better teachers, and (2) I make lots of mistakes, so maybe if I blog about them I’ll  be a better teacher!

Step 1:  start a blog.  Check.

Step 2: blog regularly. Partial check.  (Signed up for Project52)

Step 3: make less mistakes next go-around.

I look forward (gulp!) to putting all my bumps, bruises, and train wrecks out there for the world to read!

  1. Me too. It is pretty daunting but the support from my tweeps has been positive. Keep it up and we can both share all our mistakes.

  2. GREAT blog name! I agree that it’s a great idea to blog about your mistakes (and don’t forget your successes), and I’m excited to follow along with you!
