Teaching Blog: A Veteran Observes, Opines, and Invites Commentary
My new teaching blog, The TeacherBeacon, is now online!
Actually, I have been working on it for several weeks now. I've been blogging two times a week each Tuesday and Friday. If you guys show some interest and would like me to blog more frequently, I would be happy to oblige.
I will say, however, that you ARE showing an interest in my website.
About two-thirds of the increasing traffic here at Daily Teaching Tools is coming primarily from the United States.
However, I'm pleased to be receiving a significant number of visitors from France, China, Canada, the Philippines, Australia, Great Britain, India, Japan, and several other countries scattered across the planet.
This tells me that I'm headed in the right direction. But, it also tells me that I need to continually add content that will be useful to you.
And I intend to do so.
The TeacherBeacon, for me, is just another step in that direction. The observations and opinions that I plan to add in this online publication include, but are not limited to . . .
- Teachers' Issues
- Students' Issues
- Parenting Issues
- Budget Problems
- No Child Left behind
- The Achievement Gap
- Charter Schools
- Teaching with Technology
- Good Things Happening in Education
Although, as I said earlier, I'm making observations and expressing opinions, I also want to feature commentary.
That's where I think the true potential of this teaching blog lies--in the experiences and views of everyday teachers such as yourself who are, in fact, extraordinary.
I don't have to tell you that these are difficult times for teachers. The challenges are enormous. But together, we can get through this--we can excel.
We can do this.
We can do this with ALL of your help.
You may have seen my advertisements on several pages of this website that solicit your ideas regarding specific teaching topics.
As you can tell by looking at the ideas page, I've had very limited response to my request for ideas. This, without a doubt, has been the biggest disappointment for me regarding Daily Teaching Tools.
I'm hoping that The TeacherBeacon will meet with significantly more success.
That success depends largely on YOU. After all, I'm not the only one with an opinion.
Your opinions are just as important. You're the ones who are in the trenches every day.
You're the ones who are surviving.
You're the ones who are thriving.
So,come on in to The TeacherBeacon and take a look around. Kick the tires. Take it for a test drive.
And then, let's talk.
