The preparation...

So... I've been "geeking out" lately and trying to bring my teaching career (and life) into the 21st century.  I've bought the Blackberry and it is quickly becoming my right arm.  Twitter is becoming my friend with help from tweetdeck.  Boy, the first time logging in to that was scary.  Bloggers are truly amazing me daily with their relentless dedication to the blogging process.  My google reader feed is about to explode with all the updated blogs I have to read.

While on this journey to the 21st century, I've been reading a lot about this "30 goals challenge".  It seems like a great idea and something that I can share with others in my building.  I have given in to the self inflicted pressure to become more aware of technology and how it will improve my teaching.  I will begin completing the "30 goals challenge" on Monday 2-14-11.  Ironically, this is Valentine's day and a good place to start with one of the love's of my life, my job.

Here is where I will blog about the daily trials, tribulations and triumphs that happen along the way to better teaching.  Please be kind as this is my first ever blog and am very new at all of this but if you don't jump in, you'll never learn to swim, right?

So, here goes....


  1. Hi Ellen! I've been reading about the 30 goals challenge too. Good job getting started with your blog, I will be following :)

  2. Thanks Robin. It's not too late for you to join me (hint hint hint). :-) I am looking for this to be an amazing six weeks of teaching, learning and technology.
