It’s official! I’m on sabbatical!
Of course, regular readers of this blog (all 2 of you) have noted that I haven’t posted anything in a while. It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about; I have too much to write about. The wide world of education and the petri dish that is my classroom provide an endless river of topics. My opinions, however, ebb and flow like the tides. Some days I feel very strongly about things and can’t wait to sit down at the end of the day and shout at the world. But after a …, well I can’t even call them “good” any more, night’s sleep, I find it was better that I refrained. There are other times when classroom events and/or news reports just leave me shaking my head.
And so, I’m going to take a step back and become the quiet observer. I’ll research topics to form my own judgements, and when I’m satisfied with my points of view I’ll fly them up the digital flag pole and see who salutes (or if anyone sees).
