What I've Been Up To...
It seems that I've been away from my website for a while, and I owe an explanation as to where I've been, and why I haven't been keeping up as well as I usually do.
I started a website called TeachTales, which is a blogging website for, and by, teachers. There isn't really set guidelines for the blog posts; I encourage teachers to write about anything that they'd like to share, whether that's a lesson, their journey, a bad day, or just to vent. My idea behind this was to create a community for teachers to network, to talk and to reach out to each other. Nobody understands us better than each other, and I think it's important to have a supportive network.
My last semester at University has been a hectic one. I've been on assignment overload and it's been difficulty maintaining two websites, a part-time job, university and applying to schools/school boards (while somehow keep a social life). However, despite the chaos, I found solace is my websites. I enjoy not only writing blog posts and sharing resources, but reading about others' journeys and stories. I connect to many of them and have loved meeting new teachers.
My goal in life is to not only be a classroom teacher, but to make a difference in the education world. I've been taking steps with my tutoring positions and my practicums in regards to my students. This time, I wanted to make a different for teachers. When I first started out at VoicEd, I began to create such an amazing PLN, network with amazing people and be part of a great education community. VoicEd inspired me to create a community for teachers, talk about their stories about their stories and share resources.
I am open to suggestions for my website and for TeachTales, so email me your ideas!

I want you to be part of this teacher community. Let's make a different for each other.
