What I hope to get out of Blaugust this year
This is my first year participating in Blaugust. I started my blog just over a year ago and at that time I was not quite ready to attempt to blog daily for a month. Honestly, I have a conference coming up later this week, so I may not even get through one week of daily blogging, but I'll try.
I like to blog in general, not just as part of an initiative. Very few people actually read my posts, but that is not why I write. I write to help myself reflect on and serve as a record of my teaching. I'm also completely in love with the #MTBoS. I joined twitter first and spent about a year being a consumer in the #MTBoS. At first I just lurked, then I started to reply to other peoples' ideas and requests for help. Eventually I found that 140 characters was not always enough for me to share my ideas and Mathsational was born.
I like to share the resources that I create and I like receiving constructive feedback. I feel like I finally have a platform to return the favors that I get from other teachers in the #MTBoS.
So, that is my goal for Blaugust. I hope to get back in the routine, reflect, and share.
