I tried to start this blog two years ago and it never got off the ground. I could make lots of excuses, but the fact is I just didn’t make it a priority. I’m now teaching at a much smaller school and not teaching Physics anymore but now teaching Chemistry and a couple of Earth and Space classes as well. I have recently purchased a membership to the AMTA, and although I haven’t been to a training I’m going to try to teach Chemistry through Modeling this year. I would also like to be an SBG teacher, but for now I think I’ll be doing an SBG hybrid. I know that irks some, but I just haven’t been able to get my head around how to do it 100% yet. To that end, I will try to make my grades mean more than they have in the past. I will also try to make the entries in my grade book more meaningful. I will also try to not make all of my sentences start with “I” in my next post.
Here we go!
