Sherry Owens' Blog: Contemp. Prep.
So, I'm 40 and I'm trying to figure out this whole blogging thing. I think I'm trying to make it harder than it really is. I was the Character Ed. coach in our district for 4 years and during that time, I focused on people, not technology. I feel lost and anxious when it comes to creating a "new" way to teach writing. I'm old school. I like having a final product in my hand when the process is complete. As a teacher, I need to know where my kids are when it comes to their writing skills. And I also know that if they have been at GLHS for the last 3 years, they have learned to write - and write well. I, however, have to have some proof of that before I am comfortable moving forward. I hope this gets easier, and I am confident that it will.
