Creating my Blog

Creating my BlogHello,

  1. Welcome to my blog. 

    Though I have often think of creating a blog, it had remained just a wishful thinking and ideal thought till today.  I am creating this blog as a requirement for Georgia Virtual Learning Open Online Teacher Training.  After reviewing different blog hosting platforms, I choose the blogger because I am familiar with ease and security of google products.  I will write this blog from perspective of an educator, a learner & Mom of my Awesome, Amazing kiddos.

    As a mom, I want my kids to do their very best regardless of if they choose to be a bricklayer or a neurosurgeon.  As a teacher, I want each one of students – the whiz kids and the struggling learners-  to experience little successes so they can build on them.  Being a student not only keeps my brain sharp, it allows me to keep things in perspective.  When I am sitting on other side of the desk, as a student I experience the anxiety and uncertainty of waiting for the grade after submitting an assignment.  As a learner, I experience joy of the light bulb moment and euphoria of acknowledgement from my mentor.  Being a student allows me to empathize with my struggling student.  My struggling to learn a front stroke in swimming is not any different than a kid leaning to master fraction, Na? 

    As a student, I want to do well, get good grades and learn just like all the students in our classes.  I want to add in my knowledge toolbox.  There are some assignments I will sail through, while for several I will have hard time comprehending and will need assistance.  At times, I will agree enthusiastically, while other I will ask what purpose this assignment serves?  I will ask for guidance, look for collaboration, dance with joy upon succeeding and shake my head in frustration when struggling.

    You, my reader, are an important voice in my journey.  We can engage in positive dialogue with respect and without any negativity.  Feel free to give a feedback and come back often. 

    Best wishes.
