As I look over my posts for the last couple of years, I notice that many of them are based on my professional life. This blog was not originally intended to be a “teacher blog,” and I’ve had to learn what it means to put on the internet my ideas and experiences as a teacher. It was a learning curve I hadn’t expected, but I am getting the hang of it.
This blog, Oldfangled, was originally intended to talk about how I live in the 21st century despite sometimes wishing I had been a pioneer girl. The teacher stuff didn’t really fit that mold, but it was still about my experiences, so I didn’t worry about it too much.
But the lines began to blur a bit. And I like things neatly categorized. So, as Eminem says, “my OCD is konkin’ me in the head,” and I needed to make some boundaries more defined.
I started a new blog called Good Morning, Class! That’s where I’ll write about all the teacher stuff I think about. Books, curriculum, student achievement, lessons, classroom management, the whole bit.
Oldfangled will keep to home life: running, raising rabbits, home stuff, and so on.
If you’ve liked my posts that talk about my job, I hope you will follow me at my new blog!
