I started blogging last summer. Last year was my first year of teaching and reading teacher's blogs helped me immensely during the school year. I loved all of the resources available and being able to collaborate with other teachers. The community of teachers seemed so supportive and genuine.
Once I was recharged from last school year, I dove right into blogging.
My main reasons I decided to blog:
-Meet teachers in my licensure area
-Collaborate: recently I have really enjoyed participating in various book studies
-Personalized professional development
-Reflect on my teaching experiences
