Do you have to blog as part of your job requirement? I do. Not here of course, but my school expects all teachers to keep a blog that is updated weekly. This provides an important resource for parents and students alike. Teachers use it in a variety of different ways in my school from a means to show homework, for reminders, for notes to parents etc.
As an Art teacher, I use it to share what the students are doing with parents, to give shout-outs to successful students, and to highlight the successes of the Art program.
I am going to begin to put a similar copy on this blog as well so you can see how I pace my students and what sorts of trouble we get up to!
