Educating Who? Educating Me.

Ultimately, on this planet, I am a new guy. I have a lot to learn, but I am one impatient cuss. I need to know why and what for on everything. I have some strong opinions and sometimes show how very green I am when I vomit my opinion. I can be quite wrong at times; I swing for the fences but often miss the ball completely in the effort. Yes, I am an educator AND I can be wrong.

I am starting this blog because I created a class project and have several students who I have asked to start a blog. I am really trying to model the behavior I am looking for. I had a blog some time ago about becoming a marathon runner, but that experience has run its course. Hahahaha. I don't even remember my username or password to get into that relic, so I am starting a new blog that pertains to the contemporary me. As you can tell, I also laugh at my own jokes.

So these are my thoughts. Here I open myself up to be wrong and I truly encourage comments and an open dialogue so I might become more informed. I will give my opinion and you can cheer at my home run, or you can yell STRIKE! but I encourage you to also point out the origin of my error - my stance? Form? Philosophy? I do not mind failure as long as I fail forward. Help me fail forward.

  1. I have never followed a blog before, this will be a fun new experience! - One I should probably emulate!
